The Innocents is a heavy photo series that focuses exclusively on men who have been wrongly convicted of terrible crimes. Vulnerable and emotional, each shot is taken in or near the place where either the crime took place or the arrest.

Shot by New York photographer Taryn Simon, The Innocents photo series features extremely well-executed portraits. In fact, before reading about what exactly the theme of this portfolio was, I was drawn by how creative, crisp and stylized each image was.
