A photographer and a writer, both who grew up in military families, are collaborating to examine the growth industry of homeland security in the United States for an upcoming book.
Danny Goodwin, a photographer and an associate professor of art, and Edward Schwarzschild, an associate professor of English, have conducted dozens of interviews with current and former DHS and intelligence personnel over the course of two years.
The book, tentatively titled Job Security, will feature interviews edited by Schwarzschild as well as portraits and other photographic works by Goodwin.
On this episode, Schwarzschild shares about his time working for the TSA. He also wrote about his experience as an airport security guard for The Guardian in 2017. Learn more about Schwarzschild's work.
