Death Penalty Photography Exhibit on View

November 06, 2013

Lasell's Criminal Justice department has teamed with the RoseMary B. Fuss Center for Research on Aging and Intergenerational Studies to host an exhibit and talk by photographer Scott Langley, who has created the most comprehensive collection of original death penalty photographs available from one source.

The Death Penalty Photography Documentary Project will be on exhibit in de Witt Hall on November 6 with a talk at 4:30 pm by Langley.

Organizers hope that through the Death Penalty Photography Documentary Project, the Lasell community will understand more about capital punishment.

This documentary includes photographs of execution vigils, a view inside an execution chamber, the hours leading up to an execution, portraits of exonerated death row prisoners, celebrities opposed to the death penalty, marches, demonstrations and candid emotional and prayerful moments.
