Sustenance and Time

The United States incarcerates more people than any other country in the world. My project is designed to promote human rights and cultural understanding in the prison system by introducing art and sustenance as a means of rehabilitation in jails and prisons. Rather than simply observing or recording the situation, I propose to invite the inmates and their families in the telling of their stories through art exchanges, interviews, and documentary photographs. The project will consider a working relationship between the photographer (myself), documenter, and teacher, with the inmate, student, and artist. This video is the first documentation of the project.
