How can images tell the story of mass incarceration when the imprisoned don't have control over their own representation? This question is at the core of Prison Nation, a powerful exhibition curated by Aperture Magazine that addresses the unique role photography plays in creating a visual record of this crisis, using both historical pictures and contemporary digital work. Local returned citizens (individuals who were formerly incarcerated) will speak on a panel about their experiences and their response to the empathy, awareness and political action essential to creating systemic change. Free and open to the community. RSVP to socialjustice@case.edu.
