Kathy Shorr discusses and signs Shot: 101 Survivors of Gun Violence in America
The increasing ubiquity of gun violence has become the norm across the world and particularly in the United States, where we have begun to hear horror after horror on a daily basis. So much so that it has started to produce a numbing effect, a helplessness that allows us to hear the news and say, -Here we go again, - and put it out of our mind. Gun violence is now something we expect to happen. Shot is about people who have been shot and survived the experience. It portrays 101 survivors, aged 8 to 80, from all races and many ethnicities. They are the representatives of -survivorhood.- Most were photographed in the location where they were shot. Shot allows us to explore a dialogue about gun violence and how we are all vulnerable.
