– I found Melania Comoretto’s photos on the Prison Photography blog. Her portraits of women in prison are really beautiful, using the prison as a backdrop instead of the focus lets the femininity of her subjects shine through. The interview on the Prison Photography blog really gives a good look into Melania’s work.
These photographs, that have been shot in two italian prisons, are the attempt to describe how the women could express their femininity in a situation of detention and marginalization.
