Curating Courthouse Confessions

Photographer Steven Hirsch offers New York's accused what the law often won't—a listening ear.

Max Lakin

Steven Hirsch's blog is not a showcase for grandiose declarations about the state of the nation. He doesn't post mock captions tacked to pictures of cats in compromising positions, and he doesn't offer histrionic accounts of his day-to-day life as a freelance photographer for the New York Post. His blog isn't a forum; there are no commenters, nor does he offer any commentary. It's just not about Steven Hirsch.

What Hirsch's Courthouse Confessions blog does do is extend an outlet to those New Yorkers who would otherwise never be heard—like Law & Order, if Law & Order was just the accused unabashedly saying it like it is, instead of getting the habeas corpus beaten out of them by Christopher Meloni on the daily.
