"Texas Prison, New Prisoners" by Danny Lyon, Gelatin Silver Photograph, 1968

This black and white photograph shows two new prisoners in a Texas jail against a brick wall. Both wear white, and have tattoos on the torsos. The artist, American, self-taught photographer Danny Lyon, took this picture at the time he made the series "Conversations with the Dead" where he photographed six Texas prisons from 1967 to 1968. He tried to emphasize the distressing state of the prison system. It is framed in a black wood frame with a white mat. This piece was exhibited at Rice University, Houston, Texas.
