A recent study concluded that 94 people are directly affected by the homicide of one individual. According to phillypolice.com, there have been 1,985 murders in Philadelphia in the past five years. The number grows every day.
In 2012, I worked with young people at the Covenant House, a shelter facility for homeless youth, in Kensington to create imagery that approaches the subject of such devastating loss. Each of the 94 images represents one of those individuals affected by one death.
