Photographer Richard Ross on give incarcerated youth a voice

Clip: 08/30/2019 | 3m 15s

Photographer Richard Ross has documented the U.S. juvenile justice system for the better part of a decade, producing the books “Juvie Talk” and “Girls in Justice” based on his experiences with incarcerated youth. He believes the kids he meets are proof of how our system has failed -- rather than failures themselves. Ross shares his brief but spectacular take on giving them a voice.
