Lent 4: Injustice

The theme for this day was "injustice." The day before, I had spent time both in Flint and Detroit, and there were opportunities to take pictures of the "obvious" images of injustice - urban blight, abandoned homes, "pay-day loan" stores, but none of those really appealed to me, and the idea of photographing abandoned homes felt a little like it could be perceived as "ruin porn," so I thought it more appropriate to just write out one of my favorite verses from scripture.

Until that day comes, I'll just keep singing (out of tune) with Billy Bragg...
