‘‘What do you like about guns?‘‘

American children anser the photographer's question. One can hear their words, see their body language and understand their vision. They are 3, 5, 7, 12, 13,14 17 years old. They are nammed George, Victoria, Miguel, Dilan, Ashley, Gracie…
they are little boys and girls from various social background, growing up in  Texas, in New Jersey, in New York State...

At the beginning of the 1990s, Laurent Elie Badessi moved to Texas. Meeting new people, he discovered the American gun culture, an entirely new world for him. A lot of people own guns and can openly talk about it, thus he rapidely came to meet families whose children possess guns.
