The spirit of alabama

Isa Rodriguez

North Fort Myers, United States

Artist's Description

I spent two weeks in this land of the deep south . so much to say about it .

I was inmersed in its people

My job which I now can speak of was to survey prisoners and ask them questions

I cannot speak of the type of questioning I did . but suffice to say that since a little child my heart has always been on the underdog and the one who needs the most help .

I gravitate towards and never look back when it comes to difficult situations of life .

the justice system in this country needs a revamping ,

how do we measure pure liberty?

how do we measure how we perform justice ?

how can we help indivuduals whoms lives become a mandate of a state and basically a slave to the correctional system that is not correcting ?

I apologize for speaking in such broad terms .

but my heart becomes heavy

I have more to say but for now . this special photo is from the prison area I was in….. and gives me a memory of some dear people I met there

and wont forget

( I was not allowed to take photos in the prison itself and would have no time at all to go outside to take shots. this one was taken at 7 am ………….. befopre going in for the day. and then all daylight would dissappear)
