South Carolina photographer Patrick Hall has created a series that captures subjects the moment they are hit with a Taser. During the shoot, the subject’s friend or partner would administer the shock while Hall captured their reaction.
The person getting tazed was almost always nervous and jittery with either a sense of fear or anxiety. The participants doing the tazing had a different demeanor altogether. Most of them were excited to cause pain to their friend and only showed remorse immediately after executing the shock.
Check out some of the images below along with a great video to highlight the shoot
