Since 1988, I have collaborated with a group of women sentenced to life without parole in Pennsylvania. I bring visibility to the women's humanity, experiences of captivity and the details of the unimaginable injustices they endure, using portraiture, narrative, YouTube videos and my websites. One of the women, Paulette Carrington, was released last year. She was incarcerated as a child of 16. At my upcoming exhibition of their portraits, Carrington will speak about living for forty years in community with them and discuss her life today.
