Evocative portraits of people with their guns, dogs, fireplaces, etc. Photographed in their kitchens, doorways, living rooms, and other places that are part Walker Evans and part Diane Arbus. This is not intended to be a thread about the right-ness or wrong-ness of gun ownership (although some, if not all, is inevitable) but rather just about what the photographer states: the stories and pictures of the people in America who own guns.
Armed America This isn't a book about guns. It's a book about people. Whether it's 39% or 50% of Americans, it's still an awful lot of people. I started wondering just who they were, what they looked like, and how they lived. . . . I realized that I could probably photograph a hundred people in two months, but it wasn't a number of people that was important, it was their stories -- a cowboy in Texas, a survivalist in Montana, a deer hunter in Pennsylvania, a sheriff in Georgia, a soldier in Idaho.... What I really needed, I realized, was to get moving, to drive across the country and find America somewhere between here and there. via J-Walk blog
