We are honored to feature original and authentic photos on our website from renowned photographer, Joe Quint. Since 2014, Joe Quint has been traveling the nation to photograph and bear witness to the diverse stories of gun-related violence, grief, and trauma. The result is a widely-exhibited documentary photography project titled, “It Takes Us: Stories of Gun Violence from Across America.” By sharing the faces and intimate stories of those affected by our country’s gun violence epidemic, Joe works to honor his subjects and inspire audiences to take action. To learn more about Joe and his work, please contact him at joe@ittakesus.org.
