Shelley Calton SIGNED COPY: Concealed She's Got a Gun

Shelley Calton is continuing her exploration of feminine subcultures in Texas, with Concealed. She's Got A Gun, focusing on women and handguns. The majority of the women she has photographed have a concealed handgun license which allows them to carry a handgun covered on their body for protection. Often times they are unexpected gun owners, a young mother or a grandmother. Growing up in Texas gun culture, where there are an estimated two guns for every person in the state, these women are quite comfortable with their handguns. To the question, "Are you prepared to pull the trigger to protect yourself or your loved ones?", the answer is a resounding, "Yes". In her first book, Hard Knocks (Kehrer 2009), Calton photographed women athletes and their alter egos engaged in the resurgence of the roller derby, a rough and tough all female team on skates. Shelley Calton (b. 1959 in USA) is based in Houston, Texas. Her work has recently been exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in London and Zoom Photo Festival in Montreal, and is in the collection of The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
