Convicts' Letters Photography Exhibition at UMA 
October 7th - November 7th

TrentBellImageREFLECT: convicts' letters to their younger selves” is showing at UMA's Danforth Gallery from October 7th to November 7th at the Charles Danforth Gallery. An opening reception and artist talk will be held October 23th at 12:30pm.

"Reflect" is an artistic documentation of choices, consequences, and reflection. Photographer Trent Bell's portraits feature Maine State Prison inmates, who had written letters to their younger selves.

Bell is known for his architectural photography. He conceived of a photo project that would merge large-scale portraits of inmate in the Maine prison system, with hand written letter the convicts composed as though writing to their younger selves. This project came about because in 2013, Bell was shocked to hear that a friend – an educated professional, a husband, and a father of four children – had been sentenced to thirty-six years in prison.

“Our bad choices can contain untold loss, remorse, and regret,” says Bell, “but the positive value of these bad choices might be immeasurable if we can face them, admit to them, learn from them and find the strength to share.”

There is video documentation by filmmaker Joe Cater and additional prison guard portraits by Corey Desrochers.

The Danforth Gallery is located in Jewett Hall on the Augusta campus of the University of Maine at Augusta. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays. For more information visit:
