Art Inside

In Art Inside, Maine-based photographers Trent Bell, Aaron Flacke, Séan Alonzo Harris, and Lesley MacVane record artwork in these spaces inside Maine’s five prison facilities. The art featured in their photographs, all created by incarcerated people, resists the isolating and dehumanizing dimensions of punitive confinement, offering a visual literacy of freedom and creativity, of selfhood and relationality. We hope this work might provoke a reconsideration about the use of punitive confinement to address social problems. What might abolition look like?
