Brenda Ann Kenneally- Upstate Girls

Brenda Ann Kenneally's Upstate Girls (via The Digital Journalist) is one of those rare photo essays that humbles me to my very knees upon viewing. This is one intense dynamo of an essay, a visual experience you won't easily forget- and it has to be, or the subject matter itself might launch you into a depression from which you'd be hard pressed to recover. Everyone of these photographs hits it out of the park! And as impressive, dynamic, and yes, beautiful as these images are- one never loses track of the subject matter at hand. This is monster talent documenting one of the monster social issues of our day...

great social-justice documentary work. the socio-political divide in this country is a schism that borders on psychosis... where anti-big government groups support huge military budgets that fund killing citizens of another county but will not fund the health and well being of US citizens...claiming it is socialist. thanks for posting this.

Psychosis is the right word for people who willingly continue to vote against their own self interest, and as you point out- certainly not for the betterment of others...
