Final Exposure with Lou Jones

Lou Jones

Boston photographer Lou Jones virtually discuss his series Final Exposure, on view in What We Do in the Shadows. Working closely with his project manager Lori Savel Borges, Jones and Borges traveled across the United States to photograph and interview people on death row in the 1990s. Stemming from a conversation in childhood with his dad about capital punishment, Jones’ portraits shed light on people on the margins of society. After his talk, there will a Q+A that viewers can submit questions to during his talk.
