Alcatraz Island: one of the most legendary prisons in the world. A place of seclusion, harsh weather, and bleak realities. Today, the site of thousands of fascinating stories, including those of escape, perseverance, advocacy, and reclamation. These stories from Alcatraz Island have been told many times in many beautiful words and mediums. I don’t feel like I have any words to add value or novelty to these stories and I don’t believe it’s my place to try. However, I was lucky enough to spend an afternoon touring the island and learning its history, so I would like to share the images I captured that day.
