Life After Life in Prison: The Bedroom Project.

Sara Bennett’s “Life After Life in Prison: The Bedroom Project,” is one of the container exhibitions at Photoville, opening in DUMBO on September 13.

“The Bedroom Project” comprises 17 portraits of formerly incarcerated women in their bedrooms accompanied by the women’s handwritten reflections. Like the women she photographs, Bennett hopes her work will shed light on the pointlessness of extremely long sentences and arbitrary parole denials and thus help their friends still in prison: women (and men) like them who deserve a chance at freedom.

Photoville is the largest free outdoor photography exhibition in the United States, presenting work by more than 600 artists in 90 photography exhibitions & outdoor installations, and providing an accessible venue for the public to experience both challenging and entertaining visual stories from a diverse group of artists, curators, and organizations.
