In Plain Sight

By car, Michael Genovese and photographer/film-maker Jon Lowenstein travelled the U.S. conducting interviews with survivors of forced labor to bring awareness to the extreme cases of victimization, which were happening in plain sight. A remarkable group of people, who endured varied levels of deception and abuse, shared their stories of debt bondage, human trafficking, child labor, and prostitution. From Washington D.C., down the East Coast, into Central Florida to New Orleans and Dallas, they worked with safe houses, labor rights organizations, and individuals, to better understand their unfortunate circumstance. Genovese and Lowenstein traced these intimate stories through photography and video, experiencing the psychic residue left behind in small towns, truck stops, trailer parks, and hotels where these incidents took place, and continue to occur.
