Raymundo Torres Presents-Patricia Aridjis

The taboo of prision life cached my eyes attention by shining a light on "The Black Hours"
Black hours is a photographic essay about women in prison. Loneliness, lesbianism as a way of satisfying affective needs; self punishment and suicide attempts are like gaping wounds in the wrists that cry for help. Drugs to escape reality, maternity, solidarity. Life is limited by watching towers, guards, gates and schedules.''
Very strong and sensitive are the works by Patricia Aridjis. I enjoy her the use of journalistic photography and the crude subject matter.
