The reality of life inside prison is one that most won’t know but photographer Lloyd DeGrane set out to capture this reality. His collection of photos—Prison: Photographs by Lloyd DeGrane—currently on display at Roosevelt University’s Gage Gallery. DeGrane’s photographs detail the journey from Cook County Jail and into maximum-security at Stateville Correctional Center. But the pictures were only one part of the story: The writings and poetry of former Stateville inmate Simon, aka “Sam G,” Gutierrez accompanied DeGrane’s photos. Eight Forty-Eight recently spoke with DeGrane and Gutierrez at Gage Gallery.
The photos will be on display at Roosevelt University’s Gage Gallery through Feb. 4.
