Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Roma (Director of Photography, Columbia U.) presents the results of his 14 month sojourn among the accused awaiting legal proceedings in the halls of the Brooklyn Criminal Court Building. The approximately 160 black and white prints show men and women in candid shots as they endure the moments when the wheels of the criminal justice system has ground to a temporary halt. There are no captions or explanations for the photographs, so the viewer is left only to wonder at the stories behind the images. The work is divided into two sections, separately depicting male and female subjects. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Meet the Author

As Norman Mailer writes in a short foreword, "justice comes to long dead hours sitting around," as the beleaguered visages and tired bodies here readily attest. As Robert Coles, Harvard social ethicist and presidential Medal of Freedom winner, puts it in an introduction, these photos show "the struggle of various Americans to find themselves, to get a grip on their emotional moorings, to steer clear of all sorts of perplexing and scary legal imperatives as they descend upon one's eyes, ears, thoughts, anticipations, expectations, amidst a series of events that have their own momentum, logic, prompt their own requirements, madness, obligations." That sentence's complexities perfectly reflect those of the photographs.

Thomas Roma, two-time recipient of Guggenheim Fellowships, has exhibited internationally, had one-man shows at The Museum of Modern Art and the International Center of Photography, New York. His work is in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Canadian Center for Architecture, Montreal. The Director of Photography at Columbia University, author of Come Sunday, Found in Brooklyn, Sunset Park, and Higher Ground, and founding contributing photographer to DoubleTake, Roma lives in Brooklyn with his wife Anna and son Giancarlo.
