Prisons and prisoners tend to be a recurring theme in the photography industry, yet The Dungeon photo series sheds light on a more primitive form of jail cells. Western holding cells look like pampering hotel rooms (some actually are like that) compared to the conditions shown in the The Dungeon series.

Shot by Nathalie Mohadje, The Dungeon photo series falls in line with her other beautiful, thoughtful and insightful works Her past projects have included shooting homeless people in Germany, Roma (gypsies) in Kosovo and refugee camps in Bosnia. This time she has turned her lens a detention centre in Buhinjuza, which is located in the Republic of Burundi, a small country bordered by Rwanda, Tanzania and the Congo. The raw images are both intriguing and heartbreaking.
