Cell of distress

This photograph capturing the overall distress and appearing fatigue of this inmate is relevant to how many of the residents of St. Lawrence Correctional Facility feel. During my time working there, there is a clear sense of impatience when it comes to people just waiting for their date of release. The facility is meant to be a temporary stay for those in it, which keeps their hopes up for soon release, but sometimes patience runs thin and causes frustration, as represented in the picture above.
