About the project:

In October 2019, French artist JR created a unique work within the California Correctional Facility: Tehachapi, a level 4 maximum security prison.
JR and his team collected the testimonies, stories and portraits of former and current incarcerated citizens who focus on their rehabilitation, as well as some members of the prison staff, and pasted them with their help in the leisure area from prison. The gluing of 338 strips of paper was completed in a matter of hours thanks to the help of everyone involved in the project, but above all thanks to the increased number of prisoners and staff, working together with the RJ team. The final view of this installation was made possible by a drone.

This book brings together the two art installations made by JR in the prison,  behind the scenes pictures as well as the testimonies of the participants in their entirety.

It opens the doors of California Correctional Institution: Tehachapi, a maximum security prison, through an extraordinary artistic project.
