Pencil Sketch

From an ongoing exploration into identity (and identity loss) within the US prison system, Black is the Day, Black is the Night.

I have been moved by the photographic images in your series Black is the Day, Black is the Night. This pencil sketch, so full of humanity, infused with the identity of both subject and artist, creates a startling contrast to the photographs of isolated men whose identities are being slowly erased by imprisonment. This is important work.
