Execution, Huntsville Prison, 2013


Alec Soth, “Execution. Huntsville Prison. Hunstville, Texas” (2013).



This is an event in which there was protest, support, and simple
bearing of witness. Which camp does this picture belong to?
I have my feelings, but would rather not make a statement about it.
