The prison in black & white

In this workshop the inmates made black and white studio portraits of themselves and with other prisoners with a medium format camera. The working methodology of an analogical format is slow-paced and allows the prisoners to reflect on the way they want to express themselves through visual language.

"I've been in prison for 43 years. My first time was at 13 years old and Franco was not dead yet. Now this is a daycare."

"When I entered the last time, I was in a very bad place, I lived in the street and had overdosed two or three times. The best thing prison gave me has been life because if not, I would already be dead."

"I do not have any fears about leaving, but when I am around people I feel out of place, I create insecurites and paranoia. My intention is to grab a suitcase and get out." 

"Before I didn't like humanity, but after being locked up for so long, I was amazed by everything around me."
