Richard Ross, a UCSB professor and internationally known photographer has just published a book entitled, “Girls In Justice.” It follows his earlier work, “Juvenile In Justice.” ‘Girls’ documents his 3 year effort to capture images that are designed to change public policy about why and how we incarcerate girls in this country.
