#221 Take a Picture, Tell a Story, in County Jail!
Play • 42 min

'Take a Picture, Tell a Story' is American photojournalist Robert Gumpert’s thirteen and a half year project in County Jails where he makes a portrait, then sits with each inmate to audio record the sound of them talking about life, their experiences in prison, family and whatever else they should want to say. The conversations were always conducted in private away from Deputy's ears. The idea was simple; the exchange of prints for a story. Hear how the project was made and excerpts from those who shared. See the SHOW NOTES for links to pictures.
