The MCSO Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Jail, Phoenix, AZ

The Jail Project: Arizona

In Fall 2002 I began the Jail Project: Arizona. (See About for more details) I started this log-range project in pursuit of photo-documentary work with genuine social import, and of significance to others beyond that of my own personal art work.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Jail is  a focus point of national and international issues. The controversial policies of its Sheriff Joe Arpaio bring attention of the news media, and politicians

The incarceration of specific populations, socio-economic disparities, family and subsequent community distress, gang-related violence, immigration and border crisis, and all the difficulties of balancing law and order in support of our American constitutional ideals of freedom, are in dynamic tension here.
