Eastern State Penitentiary 

Eastern State Penitentiary was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world. Today it stands in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cellblocks and empty guard towers. Known for its grand architecture and strict discipline, this was the world's first true "penitentiary," a prison designed to inspire penitence, or true regret, in the hearts of prisoners. Its vaulted, sky-lit cells once held many of America's most notorious lawbreakers, including bank robber "Slick Willie" Sutton and Al Capone. These images represent the people that live here and what is still standing. Although the rooms may look empty they are still filled with stories and voices unheard. Through these images, you can see a glimpse into their lives and what they went through due to the actions committed.
