Last weekend, I visited the Joliet Prison. This prison operational from 1858 to 2002. The prison was featured in The Blues Brothers as well as the Prison Break television series. Here are some of my favorite photographs from my visit:

1- East Cellblock

The last one is a great example of realistic scenes that have abstract characteristics. Great eye!
Thank you, Mike...much appreciated!
If I had been incarcerated there, I would have lost my mind. These are fantastic, Glenn.
Thanks Lyndee
Fascinating set. Wonderfully photographed with your keen, eye.
Thank you, Mitch
Excellent set Glenn. Your photos makes me want to check it out. Do they let you use a tripod?
Thanks Alvin...yes, I used a tripod for all of the shots. I found it critical as most of the exposures were long and some are bracketed.
I felt sad and bad while viewing those images but it is a very nice set.
Thanks Binnur...sure makes one appreciate one's freedom!
