About the Photograph:

“I had been looking for a modern day knife thrower and assistant to photograph, and found Jon Anton in Kent, England. Living in  a luxury caravan on a farm, he was able to use the un-used barns while he was practicing with his assistant. I caught a moment where her eyes betrayed an expression that indicated she had seen enough knives flash by her for one life.”
