DIGITIZED GRAFFITI EXCLUSIVE: Wish You Weren’t Here – Polaroids from Prison. (Photography)

The following photos were taken inside a former correctional facility in Canada. These photographs were taken inside the cells of prisoners. The cells were tiny spaces, but prisoners were allowed to decorate their cells with the objects of their affection, mainly pictures taken from magazines depicting cars, trucks and women. Writing materials like pens or markers were strictly prohibited, but prisoners sometimes were able to smuggle them in, allowing them to express their troubled minds filled with dark thoughts on the walls that surrounded and confined them for years.
