These are some of a series of photographs that Kamil Śleszyński made, both in prisons and in centres that support ex-prisoners, in the north-east of Poland. Kamil told Prison Photography that he was curious about how prisoners thought about freedom and "why many prisoners couldn't live outside [of prison] and would come back again."
Admirably using a 4x5 camera to produce these great images, Kamil explored the culture inside these institutions. I recommend reading his interview with Pete Brook, over at Prison Photography - your only destination for prison-related media and calls for reform.
