More than 2 million people are now behind bars in the United States. Tougher laws and mandatory minimum sentences for drug crimes will send even more people to prison. Many of them permanently.
As prisons run out of space and medical costs soar, people who manage North America's prisons worry about how to handle a pending explosion in the geriatric population behind bars.
'Prisoners of Age' features stunning, and yet disturbing photographs, of geriatric inmates from numerous prisons in the United States and Canada that specialize in the care of elderly and infirm prisoners. These prisons are but a small sample, a microcosm of the prison system to come in the near future.
This book is the 208-page companion book to the exhibition that ran from September 2000 until February 2001 at Alcatraz Penitentiary.
