One Photographer’s Chilling Photo Essay On Kids, Guns And Fear

In the wake of yet another mass shooting and a little over a year following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings, Americans are engaged in painfully familiar debates on gun control.

Dubbed “My First Rifle”, Kesteleyn interviews gun-owning children throughout the country and asks them about their greatest fears–and what they think their gun will protect them from. Their responses–zombies, giants and sharks–offer a troubling glimpse into how the modern firearm is introduced as a means to solve an irrational fear. See more at Beautiful Decay.

She, like the language itself, is a work of fiction.
