Inmate Reunion

Every year Eastern State Penitentiary holds a reunion of former prison employees and even former inmates.  Believe it or not some former residents of ESP are happy to return and share their experiences with the public at a Q and A session.  I suppose since the prison closed down over 40 years ago, there has been enough time and distance for them to handle visiting the place where they were once imprisoned.  I have been doing several ongoing projects with Eastern State, which now a museum and hosts one of the most prestigious haunted houses in the country. Here are portraits of 3 of these former inmates standing in the very place they would have given anything not to be four decades ago.
