Richard Ross / Juvenile In Justice

Richard Ross spent 24 hours in isolation.

Photographer Richard Ross knows the juvenile justice system well. For his "Juvenile In Justice" project, he scoured the United States, interviewing thousands of detained young people in hundreds of facilities across the nation. And in May, he took his project to the next level, when he spent an entire 24 hours in lockup at a juvenile detention center in the Midwest. With a digital camera set-up, he photographed himself in an isolation cell, once every seven seconds; recently, photographs from the experiment were published on Wired.com.
