View Slide Show

Prison constitutes the oldest and most conventional tool for society to punish crime, but the toll detention takes on convicts is often overlooked.

This project follows inmates after their release, delving into their worlds and fragile situations, and follows them in their struggle to rebuild their lives. In a country where human rights conventions are still violated and exist pretty much in a gray zone, society finds itself not ready to confront its own problems.

This project investigates and examines closely this silent crisis.
