The Eugene Richards


Eugene Richards

Photojournalist Eugene Richards' images are both searing and incredibly intimate. There's the young boy crying on the bathroom floor of a housing project; the hollow eyes of a mental patient in Mexico; a needle gripped in the mouth of a heroin addict in New York City. Richards himself grew up on the gritty streets of Dorchester, MA, a place he says he never quite got used to because everyone was supposed to be afraid of everyone else. He wasn't and it shows. For thirty years, Richards has focused his lens on all that is human, while the rest of us hold our breath.
