Pete Brook has began his Prison Photography on the Road project. Brook is the lead contributor for Wired Magazine's photography blog Raw File, and creator of the Prison Photography blog that tackles such issues as "The Image / Incarceration / Representation / Media / Social Justice / Responsible Photography." For the project, Brook is traveling for 12 weeks to conduct interviews with photographers who, "through their work in prisons, have shaped America's visual culture and the debate on US criminal justice." He will also talk to leading advocates for prison education, arts, and law. 

Interviewees include Bruce Jackson, Jon Lowenstein, Deborah Luster, Danny Lyon, Lori Waselchuk, representatives from the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Innocence Project, and many more.
