writing and art beyond walls, beyond borders

ACT14 Photographic Poem
26 September - 31 October 2013
Hoogstraten prison, BE
artist: Lieven Nollet

Photographic Poem is the title of a project in which photographer Lieven Nollet used digital black and white photography to encourage inmates to photograph their environment. Photo results were put together in a personal diary. Text fragments were combined with the photographic images. Inspiration for the texts was taken from a former 'slam' activity. Lieven made photos in three prisons in Poland in August 2013 and texts were written by inmates for a photo diary.

Eventually photographic posters were printed. Image and words are separately presented on a single poster.
