Luke Smalley, who died this year at the age of 53, continued his somewhat sly, but somewhat earnest, series of photographs of young men (and in this case three young women) engaged in somewhat strange, but somewhat mundane activities, this time set in a rather bucolic looking prison. Of course prison life is tough, and you often have to line up with the other guys in your tighty whities just to get your clean clothes. Even then the warden never does seem to get around to giving out enough shirts. Both the boys (all high school age it seems) and the photos are squeaky clean. The pics run about 3K.
