From the introduction: "To those of us living on the outside of the razor wire perimeters that separate American prisons from the outside world, the lives unfolding within those borders are often invisible. One Big Self, a collaborative work by poet C.D. Wright and photographer Deborah Luster, seeks to shed light on the characters and experiences of such inmates. Luster’s empathetic portraits of Louisiana prisoners and Wright’s poetic evocation of their joys, fears, routines, and desires place a mirror before the outside world, challenging assumptions about the moral separateness of those we have cast aside."
