Prison Obscura

Curated by Prison Photography editor Pete Brook, Prison Obscura is a traveling exhibition that explores an area of society that, in spite of its explosive growth, continues to exist in the shadows — the country’s prisons and jails. Presenting rarely seen vernacular, surveillance, evidentiary, and prisoner-made photographs, the exhibition sheds light on the prison industrial complex and those it confines. The works in Prison Obscura vary from aerial views of prison complexes to intimate portraits of incarcerated individuals.
