17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Nashville Gun & Knife

Little is more representative of American industry than the railway, and little is more controversial today in America than gun laws. The railway represents westward expansion and the possibilities of a growing America, with the riches of the steel industry. Guns and knives represent violence, death and difficult conversations. Captured in Nashville, TN, this photograph combines these two themes.
