Impossible Project images made by Jaylin Smith and Carl Jones, students at Delta Streets Academy, a school for at-risk young men in Greenwood, Mississippi.
Whenever I return to Greenwood, I try to stop by Delta Streets, bring some film, and get some time with a handful of students. My goal has been to give them the tools and encouragement necessary to learn the value of visual self-expression. These are a few of the resulting photographs.
An extension of the project, “Sin & Salvation in Baptist Town.” Supported in part by the Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography.
