Life In Kensington Through the Lens of Jeffrey Stockbridge

"It's almost like I went from photographing abandoned houses to abandoned people."

For over a decade Jeffrey Stockbridge has been documenting and photographing people in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia, often referred to as the "badlands" for its notorious open air drug market.

Jeffrey's documentary photography series and book "Kensington Blues" has been received with international acclaim, widely viewed as an intimate and honest portrayal of the opioid crisis.

Jeffrey walks us through his process, intentions, and the purpose of his most recent exhibition at Drexel University.
