Photojournalism Daily: Dec. 8, 2014

Dec 08, 2014

Today’s daily Photojournalism Links collection highlights Carlos Javier Ortiz's work on gun violence in Chicago. While violent crime has fallen nationally, progress has proven difficult in the Windy City, with more than a murder a day on average this year. The number of shooting incidents has actually increased and minority communities continue to be disproportionally affected. Ortiz has covered the gun violence in his native city for nearly a decade and recently published a book on the subject, called We All We Got. These latest photographs, taken on assignment for Al Jazeera America, are a devastating testimony on this modern-day plague.
