This short mind-provoking collage series juxtaposes the terrors of wartime with the signs of peace and hope. The vivid flowers and cartoonish shark teeth on fighting aircraft stand out in the black and white images beautifully.  The series mirrors the bittersweet peace demonstrations during the Vietnam war, where flowers were given to soldiers or put into the barrels of their guns by the civil protesters.
