Humane Exposures on Flickr!
Greetings readers! I am very happy to announce that we have now carved out a foothold on Flickr, one of the oldest photo-sharing platforms online.
Not only will we be sharing photos of our own, but you will see some of Susan Madden Lankford’s images from our trilogy of books, and you will also get to share your own.
Today we are launching two new photo communities:
We would like to encourage any of our readers who use Flickr to join these groups and share their own images on the topics.
If we are going to effect any sort of substantive change in our nation’s current, fiscally irresponsible approach to incarceration we need to shine a spotlight on the problem. By sharing images from the streets we can hopefully make people more aware of the human faces they display.
The same holds true for our prison system, particularly as applies to the women and children detained within. After all, as US Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis once stated, “Sunlight is the best disinfectant.”
We hope you will join us, and if you know of other photographers examining these issues, please steer them our way!
