Join us on Wednesday, February 14, for the second panel in a series of public programs that accompany the spring issue of Aperture magazine and the related exhibition, Prison Nation.

Louisiana’s State Penitentiary, the largest maximum-security prison in the United States, is also known as “Angola,” as it sits on the site of a former plantation with a slave population originating from Angola, Africa. This panel convenes three photographers and one writer who have made work about the notorious prison in a state that has the highest rate of incarceration of any place in the world.

Panelists: Deborah Luster, Zachary Lazar, Keith Calhoun and Chandra McCormick

Moderated by Makeda Best, Richard L. Menschel Curator of Photography at the Harvard Art Museums
