Exposé Prison Photography
Thomas Martin Captures Life in a Burundi Jail

By: Jordy Eleni (Superstar) Mar 15, 12

Photographer Thomas Martin has captured glimpses of life inside a Burundi jail. Once an arbitrary prisoner of a Congolese prison himself, Martin felt compelled to relay the stories of those who remain wrongfully accused or illegally detained.

The photography exhibit reveals untold injustice. Children under fifteen years of age have been confined in the absence of a juvenile justice system, and babies have even been born within the walls of the facility. According to the Governor of the Burundi jail, a lack of food has resulted in rioting, an inescapable reality for the children.

The moments now frozen in time by Martin illustrate the power of photography exposés, a remarkably expressive medium that, at times, is the most powerful of all art forms.
