IN FOCUS: Injustice in America

January 17, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

In Focus: Injustice in America is a collection of portraits from six photography projects focused on the U.S. criminal legal system, beginning and ending with North Carolina’s death row.

Our nation’s concept of justice has its roots sunk deep into soil fertilized by racism, white supremacy, and the dehumanization, demonization, and dismissal of the “other.” America’s criminal legal system began with genocide and slavery, then lynching and court-ordered public executions to mollify mobs. Today, we have executions that are more sterilized, but just as brutal, and policies and policing that disproportionately ensnare black, brown, and Indigenous people. Past and present, it’s a “justice” system that’s anything but just.

In Focus: Injustice in America ties a few of these injustices together through image and narrative.
