This poignant exhibition of historic photographs of women living and working in prisons ran at Nottingham’s National Justice Museum from November 2019 to February 2020. The photos in the collection were taken in several UK prisons from 140 years ago to the 1980s with very little information about their provenance or the stories of the women they captured. Looking at these emotive images of women in captivity might provide some interesting food for thought as we each experience our own kinds of isolation and distance from the wider world. Throughout the collection you will notice solidarity, togetherness and moments of joy within the bleak context.
