Photographer Jesse Rieser for Society Magazine

Published in French magazine Society’s “America” issue, Jesse’s photo essay depicts a Latino neighborhood plagued by “The Serial Street Shooter” while serving as a metaphor for issues in American policy and politics: a lack of immigration reform, racial inequity, a shrinking middle class, community policing dysfunction, a lack of mental healthcare and quotidian gun violence. This work was also a winner in the American Photography Annual, featured in Buzzfeed, Fast Company, Feature Shoot, and The Daily Mail, along with being exhibited at the Houston Center of Photography.
