Photo Requests from Solitary

Every day, at least 80,000 people are held in solitary confinement in the United States. These conditions cause profound and long-lasting psycho-physiological harm.

Photo Requests from Solitary (PRFS) is a participatory project that encourages people in long-term solitary confinement in US prisons to request a photograph of something - real or imaginary - and then find a volunteer to take it. The wide range of requests has become an archive of the hopes, memories, and interests of people living in extreme isolation.

Every day, at least 80,000 people are held in solitary confinement in the United States. These conditions cause profound and long-lasting psycho-physiological harm, with the United Nations also condemning them as torture. PRFS provides public education about solitary confinement and supports campaigns against this practice. The project offers the general public a direct connection with people in solitary confinement through an artistic collaboration that acknowledges creativity and humanity shared on both sides of the prison walls.

The Photo Requests from Solitary project was initiated in 2009 by Tamms Year Ten, a grassroots group seeking the closure of the infamous Tamms Correctional Center in southern Illinois. To learn more about the project or to take a photograph for someone in solitary confinement, visit photorequestsfromsolitary.org.
