Gunman T-shirt – The rather aggressive “Gunman T-shirt” by Edward M. Fielding started out as a self-portrait. Playing the role of a mugger or robber thrusting a gun in a victims face, the image started out as an exploration of extreme wide angle lens distortion.
The resulting graphic image of the barrel of a gun looming large started out as a photograph before heavy post-processing and the addition of graphic line effects.
By using a ultra-wide angle, manual focus lens on a Canon 6D DSLR camera on a tripod in the studio with a remote trigger and timer, Fielding was able to capture this extreme angle with a bit of trial and error.
As a t-shirt this image might as well be called “Back Off Sucker” as the barrel of the revolver explodes off the wearers chest aiming directly at the viewer. Certainly an attention getting t-shirt especially in black fabric and white ink.
Lenore Senior says about the source image: “This is a fantastic, yet disturbing, look at wherein art melds with statement. I love this very powerful work of art, which says a lot in one stark image.”
