The innocents

photographs and interviews by Taryn Simon

«These are the faces and voices of the wrongfully convicted: fifty men and women who were imprisoned for years before proving their innocence with the help of The Innocence Project, which strives to transform criminal justice into a more equitable and reliable system. The personal testimonies of these victims of mistaken identity lay bare the paradox of innocence and imprisonment, the inability to recover the years stolen from them, and the state's unconscionable refusal to compensate them or ease their traumatic transition to civilian life. The Innocents, opened at P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center."
