No, it’s not an upcoming summer blockbuster.  It’s a new book of photos from Lindsay McCrum.

The gun debate is such a charged and heated one in this country, it’s refreshing and eye-opening to see it framed (no pun intended) in a non-confrontational way.  This post takes neither side, just want to tell you about how evocative the photos are.  Each photo tells a compelling story, strikes a balance of between sweetness of the subjects and the subtle deadly force of the weapon.

As a writer, you could write a film or book with this image as a spark.  As a designer, you could play with the balance of feminine and masculine, soft, hard, protective and vulnerable, danger and safety.
