‘They Just Know You Up to No Good’
Poignant words from one of the Ballou High School students Politico Magazine interviewed for a feature I shot earlier this year. The magazine convened a panel of students and had them discuss their lives and the frayed relationship they have with the criminal justice system in DC. Scope it out here. Fair warning- it’s disheartening to hear what they have to put up with. On the bright side, the man moderating the panel was none other than Gabriel Benn (green sweater), the award-winning hip hop artist and youth mentor who wrote and performed the Boondocks theme song. He treated us to an impromptu rendition, which I have to admit was one of the highlights of my year. See more portraits from the shoot on my website here.
