Product Description

"From the Publisher:" What does it mean to face a life prison sentence? What have "lifers" learned about life - from having taken a life? Photographer Howard Zehr has interviewed and made portraits of men and women in Pennsylvania prisons who are serving life sentences without possibility of parole. He invited them to choose street clothes to wear, then photographed them in a neutral setting with their eyes engaged by the camera. The result? Readers see the prisoners as people, de-mystified. Brief text accompanies each portrait, the voice of each prisoner speaking openly about the crime each has committed, the utter violation of another person each has caused. They speak of loneliness, missing their children growing up, dealing with the vacuum, caught between death and life. 8.5 x 8.5 120 pages paperback.
