This book offers a fascinating angle on portraits. Jackson points out that almost none of the people involved in prison photography is an avid participant.
Of course, the suspect/convict doesn’t want to have a picture taken. And the government employees that take and process the photos have no interest in art or self expression.
The result are portraits that almost always capture their subject a profound low point; either on their way to or in prison.
Other Art Forms | The Marty Stuart Show
I’ve been enjoying The Marty Stuart Show, shown weekly on the RFD-TV. His band is first rate, and the guitar interplay is a joy to watch.
Marty gets outstanding guests. Recent shows have featured John D. Loudermilk, Bobby Bare, and (above) Deke Dickerson. Watch as Deke, Kenny Vaughn and Marty dazzle with virtuosity.
