Photographer's Note

Biennale of contempary art in Lyon. A full wall of aligned spades. An piece of art by Pedro Reyes ("Palas por pistolas") whose idea -which he realized- was to propose to Mexicans to give their illegal weapons back and to melt the metal to make some spades he uses to plant trees where they're shown / exposed. From tools of death to tools of life, that's the idea. Hope someone explained to the kid...
