Creative Writing at Kern Valley State Prison - 2018 Sept.
This class takes place in the gym. It was very hot the day I photographed, but large fans kept us fairly comfortable. Everyone had to speak up to be heard over the fan noise. The instructors are Susan Cuscuna and Johnny Kovatch (Johnny was not present the day of the shoot) of InsideOUT Writers; this class is part of the Arts in Corrections program. 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.
