Jason Paul Roberts, David Williams, Aurora, Colorado, 2012
Roberts shares a handful of photographs made the day of the shooting. This is a portrait of one of the victims:
Aurora theater shooting victim David Williams. David was shot in the hand when a gunman opened fire on the audience of Theater 9 at the midnight premier of “The Dark Knight Rises.” I met David hours after the shooting in a park near the theater, where members of the community gathered for a small vigil. Understandably he was still in shock; talking to anyone who would hear his story, looking for comfort. Like many of us in Colorado he moved here from somewhere else, Detroit, and he is wondering how such a horrific event could happen in the small city of Aurora.
