Final Exposure: Portraits from Death Row

Overview

I first saw the brave and beautiful photographs in this remarkable collection at my ranch near Dubois, Wyoming, one night when Lou Jones made a slide presentation to the young trail warriors at the Trial Lawyer's College. A silent pall fell over the small group. Few had ever looked in the face of a human being who was destined to be killed, purposely, with premeditation, on an hour and day certain. Now we looked at the faces, and what we saw from Jones's penetrating camera were not names or numbers, not writs of ...

Overview

I first saw the brave and beautiful photographs in this remarkable collection at my ranch near Dubois, Wyoming, one night when Lou Jones made a slide presentation to the young trail warriors at the Trial Lawyer's College. A silent pall fell over the small group. Few had ever looked in the face of a human being who was destined to be killed, purposely, with premeditation, on an hour and day certain. Now we looked at the faces, and what we saw from Jones's penetrating camera were not names or numbers, not writs of habeas corpus or titles on legal documents, but people: people who were resigned to their fate, or who felt sorrow and shame; who were confused and knew not what was happening to them, or who knew full well their fate and had long ago abandoned hope. We were shown people who had been touched by the camera, and who, in turn, touched us through the photographs. -From the foreword by Gerry Spence.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
There is a never-ending fascination with inmates on death row. Jones, an award-winning commercial and art photographer, has interviewed and photographed 27 men and women on death rows across the country. Some, like Mumia-Abu-Jamal of Philadelphia, are well known. Others, like Nelson Shelton of Delaware, have never received publicity. All 27 have stories to tell, which Jones records here. His own comments, however, are the most memorable part of the book. This work is a worthy companion to Howard Zehr's Doing Life (LJ 8/96). Both volumes record the horrors of the prison system and the death penalty, and both leave readers with many unanswered questions. Both volumes are highly recommended for all libraries.-Frances Sandiford, Green Haven Correction. Facil. Lib., Stormville, N.Y.
