I worked with Sustainability in Prisons Project for 10 weeks in 2016 photographing environmental programs in Washington State Prisons. The opportunity granted me access to 10 of Washington State's 12 prisons. The experience provided me with a rare opportunity to photograph incarcerated individuals and corrections staff, ultimately leading to a wide variety of subjects, settings, and moods.
The goal of this series is to capture the human element of incarcerated individuals, an element too often unseen.
