“Locked and Found” is part of Robert Gumpert’s “Take A Picture, Tell a Story” project begun while working on a short documentary concerning the closing of San Francisco’s County Jail 3, the oldest count jail in California at the time. He had the idea of connecting photographs of inmates with whatever story they wanted to tell except for a story of an open case. The project began in 2006 and is regularly updated. To see the archive of photos and to hear the stories click here or on the above photograph of Thaddeus Stevens and Roy Westry taken in August 2009.
What a striking image. quiet a redundant shot till you notice the prisoners wrist bands.
