William Legoullon: Unintended Targets

William LeGoullon is an artist raised and currently based in Phoenix, Arizona. His work covers a wide range of topics, from deserts to abstract art yet this particular series titled “Unintended Targets” caught our attention by having a more distinct narrative.

Here, Legoullon explores the way tangible items portray and embody a landscape. The objects photographed in this series have been left behind all over Arizona, often on National Forest Land, after being used for legal and illegal target practice. According to the artist, the puzzling characteristics these items acquire due to forces both human and natural help to reinterpret them as representations of both pleasure and violence.
