The Last Known Prison Photography Project

InsideOut tells the story of a group of inmates in the infamous Lorton Correctional Facility in Washington, D.C., who undergo a transformative process through a photography program by allowing them to express the challenges they face while incarcerated. (source)

Another great item from OTPW-er Sam:¬†Karen Ruckman held the last known photography workshop for prisoners inside a US adult prison in the 80’s. She is in the process of putting together a documentary using footage shot inside Lorton.

The above video is a trailer for her film.

Ruckman’s tumblr¬†shows some of the incredible work.
