While on assignment in Sacramento, California in 1997, the photographer John Trotter was beaten and left for dead by members of a drug-dealing street gang. He suffered a traumatic brain injury and spent months recuperating in Sierra Gates, a rehabilitation facility where, among other things, he would have to re-learn how to remember. Trotter hesitantly picked up a camera again after he had left the clinic, mostly as therapy, and began a vivid and vital record of his life there among the brain-injured. In so doing he had to teach himself from the start how to use a camera. Being John Trotter is his testament to that time. ~With color photographs that are intelligent, lucid, and heartbreaking, Trotter presents here the cold realities and humbled hopes of men and women faced with uncertain futures, stripped of many of the vital qualities that once defined who they were. Being John Trotter is also a testament to those faced with caring for these once-independent adults, and an examination of the world of injured minds.
