Putting a camera behind bars


While most people would assume that the only photography that happens in prison is from the footages of the security camera – a women’s prison in Romania proved otherwise.

According to PetaPixel, photographer Cosmin Bumbut lead a photography workshop with 14 women in a Romanian prison.

Bumbat furnished 14 women with six Canon PowerShots plus cards and batteries,  and taught them basic photography. The photo workshop began meeting weekly, and within two months, the class had produced some 14,000 images

The photos from the workshop using this ‘community-based’ method are stunning. View the album on Punctum here. (note: not all photos are safe for work)
