I'm thrilled to announce that Corrections is going to be published in the upcoming issue of Aperture Magazine. Issue 230, "Prison Nation" takes a look at the American prison system. This special issue was guest-edited by Nicole R. Fleetwood, and Ruby Tapia wrote an introduction to my work.
Photographs of incarcerated young people usually depict them with ghosted faces. The state requires that their personal identities be protected, so visual representations of them must take care to blur their most human feature. That's the logic of incarceration: prison erases and dehumanizes. Zora J Murff's Corrections puts us cleanly in this space of constructed murkiness.
A group exhibition curated from the issue will be on display at Aperture Foundation through the beginning of March! If you're in NYC, this is an exhibition you don't want to miss! Please see the press release below for more details.
