Bird in Flight Prize ‘19 Finalist: (Un)Intended Targets
William Legoullon, USA
“(Un)Intended Targets” is concerned with the abusive and often unregulated relationship between recreational shooters and specific locations frequently visited by them in Arizona.
Pointing his camera towards objects that have been left behind after being used for legal and illegal target practice, William examines a thread within the fabric of American culture where firearms traditionally orchestrate dominance not only over opposing human forces, but geographic as well.
Drawing connections to the lawless and erratic nature of the once wild west, his images provide context to desert environments and the various symmetries that continue today between nature and the human experience.
