It Takes US
For me, this means meeting and photographing survivors of gun violence as well as the friends and family members of gun violence victims… and telling their diverse stories of trauma, grief, and strength. I want to show how the crisis extends far beyond the typical media narrative of urban violence to include domestic abuse, suicide, children being injured or killed by unsecured guns in their homes, and so many more tragic cases. By shining a light on these people, and allowing viewers to relate to them on a personal level and maybe even see their own families story in the stories of others, I hope to create a dialogue that will lead to meaningful change.
