A for­mer pho­tog­ra­pher for the New York Times, Sal­ter has cov­ered sev­eral con­flicts abroad. The es­sen­tial part of doc­u­ment­ing sur­vivors of painful ex­pe­ri­ences is to re­mem­ber “they’re more than what they went through,” he says. He used that same hu­man­iz­ing ap­proach when pho­tograph­ing the teenage sur­vivors of the Park­land shoot­ing (p. 34). “It’s re­ally re­mark­able that they’re will­ing to lend their voices to some­thing larger than them­selves.”
