Not Forgotten

 
In 2007 I spent a year documenting each and every homicide in the Rochester community. The city of Rochester had, at the time, a very high homicide rate and not coincidentally one of the highest child poverty rates in the country.  I interviewed family and friends of the victims, attended vigils, funerals, and wakes, and produced a story for each victim.
 
The project was originally published on the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle’s website. The original project was built in Flash, a program that is no longer supported. But the original stories, told in photos and audio interviews can be viewed below.

    Just wanted to say hello how you doing?Hope the family is doing well. I am writing a book to go with my film Homicidez and I included your name and cited your work. I would like to include one of your images that you did in “Not Forgotten”. I am still writing and will send you a lay out of what it would look like. Thanks for being you and staying true to your craft.
    Nemaste,
    Nicholle
