A revealing and unsettling journey to the heart of America’s deadly love affair with the gun
In the 18 years since Zed Nelson’s seminal photography book Gun Nation was published, 500,000 Americans have been killed by firearms in the US. Half a million people dead and many more injured, Nelson returns to the people he met, re-photographs them, and asks why America is a nation still with an insatiable appetite for firearms.
Gun Nation explores the paradox of why America's most potent symbol of freedom is also one of its greatest killers.
