Eastern State Penitentiary

Some pictures of the Eastern State Penitentiary I visited in Philadelphia. It was of course a little bit dismal but also an interesting visit. This penitentiary was one which has a doctrine which seems hard : all prisoners were always alone, it was forbidden to speak or meet others prisoners so they were always alone and silent. It’s easy to imagine they probably became crazy. I tried to figure this loneliness in my pictures.
