Portraits from a Romanian Women’s Prison

Here are some photos shot by female convicts inside a penitentiary in Romania. As part of Cosmin Bumbut’s prison workshop, fourteen women with six Canon PowerShots have captured intimate, narrative images – the type of photography that few professionals can achieve. Nifty doing: The convicts get a creative outlet and the project’s organizer scores a bounty of work. See more below and here. How does Los Angeles correctional not have a similar program?
