About the Photograph:
“Michele is a nurse, hunter and avid gun user who lives on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. This image depicts Michele returning home from work before changing to go hunting. Her guns were in the car, so she brought it inside with her. The image comes from the Women and Guns series which explores women’s interest and use of firearms for professional and recreational purposes.”
