The use of the image in the criminal justice system has deep roots in American society. Stemming from phrenological daguerreotypes of African slaves and the anthropometric Bertillon System, the photograph provides the context to shape perception of those in the system's grasp. While working with kids on probation, Zora J Murff photographed those in his charge, culminating in the series, Corrections. The series explores stigmas attached to images of incarceration and questions our consumption of and collective belief in images.
