Now Showing,  full image below, combines an untitled photograph from 1935 in Ben Shahn and several smaller photographs of handguns, a bullet, and hunting and assault rifles.

Shahn’s photograph was a black and white image of boys looking at movie posters. Werewolves featured prominently. I added color by hand with pencils and texture with Photoshop effects. Each of the guns (and the bullet) received backgrounds and effects to make each more unique. I darkened the elements of Shahn’s photo but kept the guns bright and colorful for contrast.
