Over a recent dinner meeting in SF’s Outer Richmond we confirmed: ERNEST will collaborate with Pete Brook on the Wapato: Demos publication. Pete’s work is rigorous, heart felt, and we’re excited to see what he comes up with in terms of an essay within the Wapato publication. His website, Prison Photography, is the best introduction to him and his work with prisons.

He writes for WIRED’s  Raw File as well as contributes to Salon‘s BagNewsNotes, which is the only website dedicated solely to visual politics and the analysis of news images.

Here’s a recording of a recent talk, part of a series on FAILURE, that Pete gave: Mass Incarceration, a Systemwide Failure.
