WITH FANS ACROSS THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM—FROM GOP LEGISLATORS TO NOAM CHOMSKY:

"As I observed almost four years ago about Project Lives—the book of photographic self-portrayals by New York public housing residents, with imagery intertwining revelatory text—it is always inspiring to see the scorned and disenfranchised take control of their lives.

 

Now comes the book and documentary about cameras turned over to the city's probationers, the latest effort by the non-profit Seeing for Ourselves. Once again, we recognize how connected we all remain. Once again, the photographs open our eyes and warm our hearts. Once again, our concerns for social justice broaden and deepen."         

"Finally, a positive treatment of probation. Inspiring!"

—VERONICA CUNNINGHAM, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER,

AMERICAN PROBATION AND PAROLE ASSOCIATION

"Such a thoughtful and life-affirming documentary!"

—STEVE WOOLWORTH, PRESIDENT

INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY JUSTICE ASSOCIATION

Equipped with cameras and a novel artistic technique, some people of color ensnared in probation

set out in a whole new way to return the sanction to its rehabilitative roots—

only to find themselves transformed by the attempt.
