Aerial Footage

Aerial footage of prisons shows their “in plain sight” proximity to bustling neighborhoods. Their placement in the middle of communities also shows how the criminal system is enmeshed in the American imagination as something that has been and will be permanent. No incarcerated persons will be shown in this documentary, and in place, we observe the architecture that holds the incarcerated and witnesses their conditions.   For your interest, please consider reading Varieties of Prison Voyeurism by Jeffery Ian Ross (2015)
