On behalf of mentally ill inmates of the South Carolina prison system, a
class action suit was filed.
At the heart, is this question:
What kind of civilized people are we that we turn a blind eye to cruelties
which can only make mental illness worse? These are our taxpayer dollars
at work. Does this really represent our best sense of justice?
Audio interviews and photos of individual prisoners.
As a lawsuit proceeds, discovery is allowed so
people can go in and document facts pertinent to the case. Alan was commissioned to take
photographs and to record interviews with prisoners. These are his short audio edits.
