BRINK is the new Punctum publication of David Butow’s photographs documenting the January 6th, 2021 riots at the United States Capitol. All Butow’s powerful images supports the adage that a picture is worth a thousand words. BRINK is an important body of images; a historical record of the power of myths. Myths of a Nation that was and now risk to be overwhelmed by events, very close to a coup d'état, where it was not clear where democracy was.
