“Grace Before Dying” photo show (Portland OR)

August 26, 2010


There’s a great show up at Blue Sky Gallery in Portland this month, photos of the prisoner/volunteer-run hospice program at Angola State Penitentiary (LA) taken by Lori Waselchuk. Angola has a really high rate of life sentences, the photographer’s website states that it’s over 85% (!), with so many long term inmates programs where many prisoners are expected to die within walls, programs like this are pretty powerful. This show is only up another week so hurry down if you’re in town. Bluesky’s website is here, and the website for the show itself is here.
