A Moment of Silence for Charleston at NY Exhibition

At the New York opening of his exhibition 'It Takes Us' on Thursday, photographer Joe Quint asked for a moment of silence. The show, organised by the Dads’ chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Everytown For Gun Safety, displays portraits of “survivors”, people left behind by the fatal shootings of loved ones. But Quint’s request was not for them. It was for those killed Wednesday in Charleston, South Carolina. The show opened less than 24 hours after nine people were shot dead at a church in the southern city.
