Starring into Guns at Point Blank
Point Blank takes us on a photographic journey we wish to never recreate in real life. Peter Andrew, Simon Duffy, and Derek Blais are creating a series of photographs showing us the wrong side of handguns, up close and point blank. The barrels and views of the guns vary wildly with a few guns appearing incorrectly harmless and others simply terrifying. Their photographic study helps us feel the terror that runs through the minds of victims and combatants as they realize a gun has just been shoved in their face. Is this a statement with a political slant? Not at all, it is a simple artistic journey of the side of a gun that people fear and avoid. You can feel the intensity as you see the bullets in the barrel of the revolver, realizing these photographs exhibit the true dangerous side of the weapon.
