Inspired by an incident at a Houston hair salon where a customer’s gun went off accidentally in her handbag, Shelley Calton began her series, ‘Concealed, She’s Got a Gun.’ The photographs depict women in various environments with handguns by their sides.
It reminds you of something Quentin Tarantino would do! Reasons for why women might carry guns, according to what Calton found, vary drastically. She says, “I found a commonality in their [women’s] response to the question ‘are you prepared to pull the trigger to protect yourself or your loved ones?’ The answer from the women in this collection of portraits is a resounding ‘yes.’”
