Zora J. Murff's exhibit at Vermont Center for Photography
For three years, Lincoln, Nebraska-based photographer Zora J Murff provided monitoring and rehabilitation services to youth on probation in eastern Iowa. Combining his work in human services and photography, he documented the young men and women in his charge. The result is his series "Corrections," an examination of youth experience in the system, the role images play in defining kids who are deemed criminals, and how the concepts of privacy and control may affect their future.
Murff opens "Corrections" at VCP this Friday during Gallery Walk followed by the talk on Saturday, at 6 p.m. The talk is free and open to the public at VCP, 49 Flat St., Brattleboro.
