Take Note: Photographer Richard Ross On "Juvenile In Justice"

"Juvenile Justice," by photographer and researcher Richard Ross

In his latest work, renowned photographer and researcher Richard Ross opens our eyes to the harsh realities of America's juvenile justice system.  

For his book, “Juvenile In Justice,” Ross photographed and interviewed more than a thousand youths over a five-year period in juvenile detention facilities around the country.  The result is powerful and haunting. 

A distinguished professor of art at the University of California, Santa Barbara, Ross has received numerous grants and awards and his works have been exhibited in museums worldwide.  

WPSU's Patty Satalia  talks with him about juvenile justice, the power of the still photograph, and about where he'll be focusing his camera next.
