Art Lecture by Richard Ross: "Juvenile in Justice"

Monday, May 4, 2015 at 6:00pm

Lawrence Hall, Room 115
1190 Franklin Boulevard, Eugene, OR

Richard Ross, Distinguished Professor of Art, University of California Santa Barbara, award-winning photographer and author of Juvenile in Justice and Girls in Justice, will discuss his work with the University of Oregon community.

Winner of the 2012 Best News and Documentary Photography Award from the American Society of Magazine Editors for a selection published in Harper’s Magazine, the photographs in Juvenile in Justice and Girls in Justice open our eyes to the world of the incarceration of American youth. The images in these books were made over 5 years of visiting more than 1,000 youth confined in more than 200 juvenile detention institutions in 31 states. These riveting photographs, accompanied by the life stories that these young people in custody shared with Ross, give voice to imprisoned children from families that have no resources in communities that have no power.
