AGE OF INNOCENCE (2016-2019) 
 
Through portraits and texts, Badessi explores the emotional and sociological relationship of children and guns in the USA. He spent 4 years taking photographs of children and teenagers in various states, documenting America’s gun culture. During the photo sessions he gave each child or adolescent the same liberty to answer this simple question: “What do you like about guns?”. Here are their answers along with their portraits.
 
This work has been presented at the Blibliothèque Nationale de France in Paris & The National Portrait Gallery in London, as well as other museums, institutions, Photo Festivals and art galleries in Europe.
 
Show runs until December 8th
