In my research, I came across another interesting prison project on Kickstarter and I’ve just learned it was featured on the New York Times photo blog. The project is a 12-week journey across the U.S. to interview photographers who have focused on American prisons. The article features some of the photos from the project, and they are definitely worth a look. Really incredible images there.
