His collection of photos—<em>Prison: Photographs by Lloyd DeGrane</em>—currently on display at <a href="http://www.roosevelt.edu/GageGallery.aspx" target="_blank">Roosevelt University’s Gage Gallery</a>. DeGrane’s photographs detail the journey from Cook County Jail and into maximum-security at Stateville Correctional Center.
