‘American Origami’ is the result of six years of photographic research, and results in a statement of over 700 photographs which closely examines the epidemic of mass shootings in American schools, weaving together first person interviews, forensic documents, and original photographs. The book takes the reader through a visual journey of shared grief, to illuminate moments of beauty and bring forward moral questions embedded in acts of collective healing. The book is bound in a unique way, and creates a parallel world of the past and the present, showing the silenced landscape interwoven with the personal artifacts created by those left behind.
