Below you'll find portraits from a project on liberal gun owners. These are people who don't fit comfortably into either political tribe; folks who are reviled by the right for their politics and by the left for their interest in guns.

By focusing on left-of-center gun owners, the portraits explore a counter-intuitive view of one of America's most hot-button issues. The subjects' politics run the gamut from socialist to straightforward Democrat to libertarian. In addition to the portraits I interviewed each subject about their politics and views on guns.

Select images and interview excerpts are being published in Reason Magazine and online. A tear sheet is available here.

The project is ongoing. Please get in touch if you'd like to participate.
