About the project:

In October 2019, JR received permission to work in a maximum-security prison located in Tehachapi, California. JR and his team photographed incarcerated men, as well as former prisoners and prison staff, collecting a total of forty-eight portraits and stories. They all worked together to create a large-scale pasting on the courtyard.

In February 2020, JR returned to California Correctional Institution: Tehachapi. Inspired by the Tehachapi mountains, which lie just out of view from the central yard of the complex, JR's team worked with volunteers from the prison's incarcerated population to wheat paste 56 strips of paper representing the mountain range located just behind the courtyard's inner wall, making the wall disappear... The installation still remains today.
