Provocative portraits challenge gun owner stereotypes

Examining the individuals behind these stereotypes was the goal of award-winning British photojournalist Charles Ommanney, who set out on a five-day assignment for the German magazine Stern last year.

Five of America’s most important art museums have selected a total of 100 works of art, and it’s up to the public to vote to narrow it down to the 50 pieces that will be displayed.
