Just inside the front door of her house on 28th Street in Louisville, Kentucky, dozens of photographs of Georgia Corcoran’s six children, grandchildren, and extended family fill the living room cabinets and shelves. She’s affixed angels and roses to several of the picture frames, and on special occasions takes some of the portraits out to her shallow, steeply inclined front yard where she attaches the frames to flower-and-tinsel garlanded metal posts in a memorial she maintains for family members killed in neighborhood gun violence.
