Much of my work has centered on a theme of imprisonment—for reasons of crime, bad luck, or nature. My subjects lack the freedom and liberties afforded most individuals living in the United States.

This image is from Captured Youth, a series of and about incarcerated teenagers. It represents four different institutions in Washington, taken over a span of eight years. What are officially referred to as \“schools\” are fact, jails for juniors--full of secrets and hidden from the public's eye. But on the inside everyone and everything is watched. I\’\’ve been continually struck by the simultaneous vacuity of these institutions and the intensity and passion found in the faces of its young residents. It is these faces that I asked to do the talking. There is more to read from the eyes than from the architecture. (There are exceptions. The Green Hill School\’\’s Intensive Management Unit, for example, demanded my attention as the most inhumane living environment I ever witnessed.)

All my images are created with an 8X10 camera. The slow, detached and deliberate approach demanded by large-format photography seems like a good match in my attempts to interpret and present people and their lives. The extreme clarity and detail tends to demand a level of attention and consideration that my subjects deserve.

It is my hope that as viewers look at the people and their confinements in my images, they consider some of the messy and complicated issues surrounding such a great number of people who live, laugh, and suffer in exile—hidden from view, but always nearby.

The Western Lands I can see a slope which looks like sand carved by
wind but there is grass or some green plant growing on it. And I am
running up the slope…a fence and the same green plants now on a
flat meadow with a mound delineated here and there…he was almost
there…almost over the fence…roads leading away…waiting….

I stole the series\’\’ title from a book by William S. Burroughs. With
this work I am simply trying to convey an experiential sense, or
feeling of being close to nowhere.
