TIME calls FotoEvidence’s book Bronx Boys, “one of the first true digital photo-monographs that can be downloaded to your computer.” Paul Moakley, Time.com, August 16, 2011.

Bronx Boys is an intimate photo essay about the lives of young people in the Bronx during the 1970s, 80s, and 90s. Shot over two decades by photojournalist Stephen Shames, Bronx Boys takes the viewer inside the lives of young people living at the epicenter of a crack cocaine epidemic that devastated their community. The story tracks their childhood on the streets, their loves and losses. It includes a powerful first person narrative by Martin Dones, one of the young men Shames followed and who survived life on the streets.

White Pride

Photography: Anthony Karen
Afterward by Ben Cosgrove

White Pride provides the viewer with unprecedented access into two of America’s most notorious extremist communities, the Ku Klux Klan and disparate groups of white nationalists.  Anthony Karen’s camera captures not only rare video of a Ku Klux Klan cross lighting ceremony but takes the viewer from public demonstrations to secret meetings and into the homes and lives of his subjects. 

White Pride includes an afterword about Karen’s photography by Ben Cosgrove, editor at Life.com, and an interview with the photographer in which he talks about how he gained access to these private communities.

Though they share an ideology of white separatism, the Ku Klux Klan and white nationalists are separated by history, tradition and culture. Karen’s work spans the spectrum of white separatism in America, reminding us of its long history, enduring presence and variety of forms in our society.

From Karen’s interview: ” The ‘dark side of society’ is something very few outsiders have access to, which makes it the perfect place for a visual storyteller to be. The appeal of exploring that realm is a combination of several factors: it’s about the interaction necessary in order to be allowed into a very personal space, the trust that needs to be established in order to be granted the opportunity to bear witness to someone in, potentially, their most vulnerable moment, and the skill and artistry involved in capturing all of that intangible essence with a click of a button.

Hammond captures both the deplorable conditions that the mentally ill endure and the overwhelming challenge that mental health workers face with limited resources and inadequate or failed systems health care systems in which the mentally ill have the lowest priority.

Interviews with both the incarcerated mentally ill and those working to heal them - secular mental health workers and both Christian and Muslim faith healers - provide blunt evidence of the past trauma and current suffering of his subjects and the challenges and frustration of those struggling with limited resources to find ways to address the needs of vast numbers of mentally ill. Shame and prejudice based on traditional and religious beliefs about mental illness add cultural obstacles to the effective treatment of the mentally ill in many regions of Africa.

The hardbound book measures 8 inches by 12 inches, with a matte laminated cover. It contains 89 black and white images, an introduction by the photographer and raw fragments of interviews conducted with patients, care givers, healers, and mental health administrators. Printed on 100lb paper on a Heidelberg press at Ofset Yapimavi in Istanbul, the photographs bring a rich, aesthetic feel to a subject matter that could be considered harsh and disturbing.

Condemned includes work shot in: the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, Liberia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Somaliland, South Sudan and Uganda. Hammond produced this work over a period of seven years using his own resources, support from the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting, and finally using crowd funding to complete the project.
