British photographer Zed Nelson, 1968, released his second book called Love Me in 2009. He travelled to 17 countries during a five year period to document the phenomenal global obsession with youth and beauty. In 2001 his seminal book Gun Nation was released. This time he focused on America's deadly love affair with the gun. Zed has a vast archive of stories he has worked on, such as the Ku Klux Klan, Hillbilly Heroin, the French Foreign Legion and more.
