CHICAGO–(ENEWSPF)–January 28, 2015.  Award-winning photographer Richard Ross will hold a photography workshop titled Images of Juvenile Injustice on Thursday, Feb. 12 from 2-4 p.m. in Roosevelt University’s Gage Gallery, 18 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago.

Ross has dedicated many years to interviewing and photographing inmates. His research and documentation on the youth justice system resulted in a book titled Juvenile In Justice, which includes images taken inside more than 200 juvenile detention centers throughout the United States.

Sponsored by Roosevelt’s Mansfield Institute for Social Justice and Transformation, the workshop is meant to encourage others to use photography as a means of powerful storytelling. Ross will demonstrate how he uses his work to expose abuse and advocate for a policy reform for the juvenile justice system.

The workshop is free and open to the public. To register, visit https://richardross.eventbrite.com or for more information about the event, visit
