Shooting Young Offenders

About

Kirsteen Ashton is a social documentary photographer who is fascinated by people and aims to capture sensitive images of individuals whose stories need telling. She spent five weeks with a group of thirteen 14-18 year old young offenders attending a Summer Arts College in Batley.In her images, she captures their personal journeys from hostility, through vulnerability, to achievement. Their story is told through her photography, their artwork, and a short film that they created about the dangers of M-CAT called ‘A Different Window'.Collectively, this work questions the approach of the justice system; tougher sentencing for kids as a deterrent, or greater investment in them so that they can be shown an alternative path?
