NY gun reform photography show starts with moment of silence for Charleston
At the New York opening of his exhibition It Takes Us on Thursday, photographer Joe Quint asked for a moment of silence. The show, organised by the Dads’ chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Everytown For Gun Safety, displays portraits of “survivors”, people left behind by the fatal shootings of loved ones. But Quint’s request was not for them. It was for those killed on Wednesday in Charleston, South Carolina.

I was reminded of Weegee last week when I took a look at a website, It Takes Us, which is the handiwork of a professional photographer named Joe Quint. The website is contains a collection of videos, testimonies and what Quint calls the ‘faces of gun violence,’ which are portraits of people who have either been victims or connected to victims shot by guns.
