With the support of an Arts Council Lottery Grant, I have been working with men and women at HMP Liverpool, HMP Styal and Feltham YOI, using photo and video to explore the meanings that themes such as Justice, Judgement, Responsibility, Power and Freedom have for them.
During a series of workshops, project participants make collages and then direct me to go out to gather relevant video footage of the outside world. Some participants have also taken their own photos within the prison setting. With permission, I recorded conversations with individual participants during workshops. Each of the short videos below is created around a different person's narrative, voiced by an actor. The videos bring together the participants' own photos with video footage which they have co-directed.
These are currently works in progress that I am updating as I work on them.
Freedom and Power
Power and Trust
