Atlas of the Week: Prison Map

Prison Map, by Josh Begley, a student at NYU studying Interactive Telecommunications, created a collection of satellite images of prisons throughout the United States. Through his collection of photographs, Begley aims to answer the question, “what does the geography of incarceration look like in the United States?” Begley has created an atlas of satellite images that map out several prisons across the United States, looking beyond statistics and focusing more clearly on space and design. Begley uses these images to compare and contrast the architecture of prisons, showing viewers the true scale of incarceration in the United States.
