Never Not Relevant: Armed America at the Brattleboro VT Museum of Art [Jun. 27th, 2016|05:56 am]

My book, Armed America: Portraits of Gun Owners in Their Homes went up for sale on the day of the Virgina Tech shootings and the issue of guns in America has never gone out of the news cycle. Last week, just a day after the shootings in the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, cards started arriving from the Brattleboro Museum in Vermont about the opening of a show featuring images from Armed America. If you're in Vermont, go see the show. I'll be there in October giving a talk entitled "1/60th of a Second of Truth: Journalists and the complex fight for unbiased reporting."

I like their blurb about Armed America: "For gun owners, Cassidy is an artist who finally shows their point of view in a positive light. For ardent supporters of gun regulation, the book provides confirmation that gun owners are the lunatic fringe."

When you came to shoot us for Armed America, I was really hesitant. I didn't know what you were going for as your message. After talking to you, and then seeing the book, I decided that you had done a really great job on the neutrality front. Everyone would get out of it what they brought to it.

Armed America was the first book of yours I bought. I still love it. You did a marvelous job of presenting your subjects.
