Juvenile Justice Photographer Richard Ross to Ensnare Viewers at SBCC Gallery Exhibition

The Atkinson Gallery at Santa Barbara City College is please to present "Isolated," the most recent component of Richard Ross's ten-year effort to document the juvenile justice system in the United States.

In this show, Ross critiques the pervasive use of solitary confinement with a combination of documentary photographs, audio clips from interviews with incarcerated youth and a facsimile of an isolation cell.

The exhibit opens with a reception Friday, Sept. 25 from 4–6 p.m. and continues through Dec. 4, 2015.

Richard Ross is a photographer, researcher and professor of art based in Santa Barbara, Calif.

He has been the recipient of grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Annie E. Casey Foundation, MacArthur and the Center for Cultural Innovation.

Ross was awarded both Fulbright and Guggenheim Fellowships. His most recent work, the "In Justice" series, turns a lens on the placement and treatment of American juveniles housed by law in facilities that treat, confine, punish, assist and, occasionally, harm them.

Two books and traveling exhibitions of the work continue to see great success while Ross collaborates with juvenile justice stakeholders, using the images as a catalyst for change.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
