Steve Liss’ “No Place for Children”

 

Contemporary Photographers

“We rarely see locked-up children because the laws established to protect their privacy have also kept them shut away from view. Fortunately, photographer Steve Liss gained unprecedented access to this hidden world and brings us face-to-face with some of the young people we are locking away by the multitudes – 104,413 in public and private facilities on any given day in 2001.” - from the introduction to No Place for Children
