My Son’s Eyes

Renee Pinkney’s 19 year-old son Don’Tay suffers from a mental illness. At age 15, he allegedly committed a crime during a psychotic episode. Don’Tay has been in jail for over a year without education or treatment for his illness. While waiting for a trial, Renee and her husband Joey are fighting to gain rights for their son and help him get out of jail.

My Son’s Eyes won Silver in the 66th College Photographer of the Year Awards in the 2011 multimedia project category.
