A Sydney photographer has popped up in a pretty unlikely place, finding his photo featured in a devastating takedown of America‘s gun laws by Samantha Bee, following the shooting in Orlando.
Daniel Boud is a celebrated Sydney photographer who has shot bands like The Grates, Empire Of The Sun, Faith No More, Andrew WK and (hopefully everyone’s favourite band) Something For Kate – and, if you’re to believe a photo flashed onscreen on “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee“, he’s also a gun-crazed Floridian lunatic with no regard for firearm safety.
