"DESPITE OUR PERCIEVED DIFFERENCES WE ARE ALL INTERCONNECTED IN SOME WAY"

Humans of Life Row is a narrative project initiated by the Prison + Neighborhood Arts/Education Project (PNAP) Justice, Politics, and Culture Think Tank at Stateville Correctional Center. The PNAP Think Tank is comprised of men serving long-term sentences who are artists, writers, poets, civic leaders, mentors, and life-long learners. Inspired by the popular Humans of New York photography project, which features stories and photographs of the diverse array of ordinary people on the streets of New York, the Humans of Life Row project explores the human beings who inhabit ‘life row,' people who are serving life or de-facto life sentences of thirty years or more.
