Humane Exposures – Photography of the homeless and imprisoned

Humane Exposures, a San Diego based organization, has an interesting new photography book coming out soon. Maggots in My Sweet Potatoes: Women Doing Time documents the lives of women behind prison.

Photojournalist Susan Madden Lankford thought-provokingly explores the kaleidoscope of alienation, personal despair, desperation, and fragile hopes of women caught up in the state’s zeal for incarceration. Maggots in My Sweet Potatoes: Women Doing Time is the product of more than two years of photographing and interviewing inmates and correctional staff at a more-or-less typical women’s jail in the United States.

Look for this book to hit the stores in the next month or so.

  1. This is definitely a must-see book. My dad who is a police officer is keeping pictures of suspects and some crime scenes. The pictures look so alive and evoke various emotions in me. I think this is what inspired me from taking forensic chemistry as a post-graduate course. Now that you’re going to launch this kind of photography book I’m really looking forward to it.
