The power of juxtaposition

April 30, 2013

In a new campaign launched by Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense, to drive support for new and stronger gun laws in America, depicts a powerful set of imagery posing school children side by side, each holding a different item – one of which has been banned by federal or local authorities to protect youngsters.

The banned items include a version of Little Red Riding Hood, dodge balls and a Kinder Surprise. In each instance, the contrasting item is an AK-15 rifle.

A simple, yet powerful, idea delivered by juxtaposing two items together to convey a very serious issue.
