photographer of the week

I came across photographer Jessica Ingram who is deeply inspired by people. One series she has is called Hilltop High in which she documented the lives of high school girls before and after their pregnacies. Another series she is currently working on is titled A Civil Rights Memorial.

A Civil Rights Memorial is both a meditation and a recapturing. With the help of the Southern Poverty Law Center and the lead FBI agent charged with investigating Civil Rights era crimes, Ingram visited and photographed the sites of more than eighteen events that occurred during the 1960s and 70s, re-contextualizing a southern landscape that at one time represented a nation’s fears, its hatred, and its shame”

Check her work out here or here or just do a quick Google search.
