Prisons, Children, America

Prison Photography: A Memory Divided | "This month, Youth Today features an essay by Prison Photography writer and editor Pete Brook. Brook highlights three photographers and their work, each focused on incarcerated young people from different detention centers across the country. Youth Today, a publication dedicated to providing juvenile justice stories as well as stories on other youth related issues, features the entire photo spread in its January print edition. . . .  an excerpt of the piece  . . . :
Hundreds of thousands of people see inside the places and spaces where we lock up young members of our society. On any given day, more than 60,000 children in the United States are behind bars. . . ."

Americans love their prisons -- the highest per capita incarceration rate in the world (by far)!
