Fifteen to thirty years in maximum security prison left the women in Sara Bennett’s photos profoundly changed. Having overcome the struggles of repeatedly denied parole, constant supervision, lack of personal space, and limited freedom of choice, how do they cope when given back their freedom and a place of their own? Through Bennett’s photos and their own handwritten words, we are invited into these women’s personal spaces and given a glimpse of their lives after incarceration.
Join us for a discussion with Bennett and two of the women featured in her photographs as we explore how prison has affected the lives of these women, as well as Bennett's approach to her work.
This event is free, but space and seating is limited. Please RSVP.
”Life After Life in Prison: The Bedroom Project” exhibit is on view at the Gallery at W83 November 29, 2018 through January 6, 2019.
