Photographer Barbara Davidson: Survivors of Gang Crossfire
Photographer Barbara Davidson: Survivors of Gang Crossfire

Listen
AIR DATE: April 18, 2012

South Los Angeles.  Compton.  Watts.  For people who live here, gang shootings are a way of life.  LA Times photographer Barbara Davidson spent almost two years in these neighborhoods.  She snapped photos of victims with their chests stapled shut, babies with head scars, a father weeping over his son's coffin, a teenager staring at her best friend's gravesite.  Barbara talks about earning their trust, sharing their grief, and her thoughts on gang warfare and whether local programs work to stop shootings. 
 
Barbara Davidson won a 2011 Pulitzer Prize for her work.  She recently received the Frank McCulloch Award for Courage in Journalism from the University of Nevada-Reno’s Reynolds School of Journalism.
