Killing Time: Life in the Arkansas Penitentiary by Bruce Jackson, Cornell University Press, Ithaca, New York, 1977.

Killing Time: Life in the Arkansas Penitentiary by Bruce Jackson, Cornell University Press, Ithaca, New York, 1977. I’m really happy to have found a copy of this book today. As an undergrad, I was a visiting artist at Western Penitentiary in Pittsburgh (no longer open) and during that time I was particularly obsessed with this book. I’m sure I checked it out of the library at Carnegie Mellon at least several times. Killing Time remains a powerful look at prison life with many keenly observed and haunting photos.

Pages from a water-damaged Black Panthers book
"I was laid off from my art teaching job in July  2011, and books I brought back from my art classroom were put in my  basement. This series was created by scanning what happened after my  basement flooded, and, after letting the books dry out for several  weeks, I opened this beautiful book of Black Panther photography by  Stephen Shame. It, along with dozens of other lovely books, was ruined. I  was rehired two weeks later."
