Visions of Confinement

A Lens on Women in the United States Prison System


Life After Life in Prison Exhibit

by Sara Bennett

Sara Bennett, photographer, and former public defender documents the lives of women returning to society after spending anywhere from 17 to 35 years in New York State’s maximum-security prison for women. While each of their stories is unique, they illuminate many of the problems inherent in today’s criminal justice system.
