Portraits of the Band Class at High Desert State Prison - 2018 Oct.
What do you do after driving five hours to photograph a band--but the band's instruments don't make it to the shoot? In our case, we made portraits!
Classes in a prison can be interrupted for any number of reasons—but as Arts in Corrections instructors have learned, in such cases you just do what you can. Music instructor Lacy J. Dalton was as gracious as ever, lending to the effort not only her guitar, but also her warm and generous spirit. And she even assisted with wardrobe adjustments. Instructor Dale Poune can be seen in the group portrait.
The class is part of Arts in Corrections; funding for these photographs was provided by the California Arts Council.
At the request of several artists, prints of these images are available at cost; just go to the LARGE image and click on the shopping basket. If the FOTOMOTO site does not open right away, please try again.
