Teens, Pastors and Housewives as Targets

Anthony Burrill created a series of posters depicting photos of typical Americans as targets.

Artist Anthony Burrill released a series of posters, Innocent Targets. The project was developed in cooperation with a creative studio, Banana & Associates. The goal of the project is to spread the word about the countless number of innocent victims killed by guns in the USA.

As stated in a description of the project: in the USA there are an estimated 18,000 shooting ranges where people practice targeting fake thugs, terrorists, zombies and aliens. Sadly, real targets of a lot of gun violence in the States are not “bad guys”, but friends, neighbors, co-workers and children.

Price of the poster is €25. All the proceeds go to The Coalition To Stop Gun Violence.
