On any given day, about 70,000 young people are in juvenile detention or correctional facilities. This multidisciplinary exhibition and project by photographer Richard Ross documents the placement and treatment of American juveniles housed by law in facilities that treat, confine, punish, assist, and occasionally, harm them.  Ross has photographed and interviewed more than 1,000 juveniles at more than 200 facilities in 31 states. The work exists at the juncture of art, social practice and politics.

Perceptions of Me is an exhibition that gives voice to teenagers who are talked and written about, but rarely listened to, raising our awareness of how Memphis teens perceive themselves. This is a collaborative project organized by Penny Dodds working with several innovative Memphis organizations that provide positive social and creative environments for youth in our community: BRIDGES, storybooth at Crosstown Arts and Caritas Village. (Learn more about Juvenile In Justice, the main exhibition, with which Perceptions of Me ties.)
