Holepunch

Sep 27, 2019 - Vincent Bezuidenhout

As part of the project Fail Deadly, the Holepunch series consists of images I made at various locations in South Africa which previously functioned as secret nuclear weapons facilities. As the apartheid regime started to crumble they disbanded the entire program including all warheads, missiles and facilities before the advent of democracy. These images are made by punching a square hole in each negative before making the print.
