Ian Witlen was one of the photojournalists on the ground when terror struck Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14th, 2018. In the aftermath of the tragedy, Ian recorded the stories of over 75 students and teachers present at MSD. The resulting project is Anguish in the Aftermath: Examining a Mass Shooting.

Each interview subject was asked two questions: “What was your experience that day?” and “What would you like to see come of it?” This exhibit presents black and white portraits and audio of their responses.
