The Knife and Gun Club: Scenes from an Emergency Room [EOL in Art 99]

In The Knife and Gun Club: Scenes from an Emergency Room, award-winning photojournalist Eugene Richards explores the emergency room of Denver General Hospital.

A witness to terrible pain, to life-and-death decisions, and to occasional joy, Richards came to view the emergency room as a microcosm of life, where the restarting of a stopped heart hold the promise of the future, where a six-hour gunshot-wound emergency carries the hurt of assassination and war.
