The photographs in JUVENILE IN JUSTICE open our eyes to the world of the incarceration of American youth. The nearly 150 images in this book were made over five 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 Richard Ross, give voice to imprisoned children from families that have no resources in communities that have no power.
