Visions From The Inside

Artist statement: “I’m choosing this imagery because I think people forget that these detention centers are prisons and sometimes have harsher conditions. The figure of a woman and her child in a desolate cell is eye opening. I don’t want to victimize her but I also want to be real about her struggle. I think I’d like viewers to feel a simple level of human connection to this woman’s struggle. And through that connection find the strength to continue their own struggle if they are also detained or be in solidarity with her.” -Zeke Peña
