‘The shooting happened on the Coney Island boardwalk, in June 2011. I happened to be there with my wife, my camera, and two rolls of 120 film (24 shots total), and I made these photographs. It was the first time I had ever seen anyone shot, or stabbed, or mased. It was the first time I’d ever seen someone die.’
