man being released from prison, not knowing what road to choose to survive
114I would like to see a man getting released from prison with $40.00 in his pocket with no family and no support after doing so many years in prison.

ocean sunset with birds flying and dolphins or whales swimming
60I would like to request a photograph of a scene of the ocean with a sunset and the bright sun illuminating the water and creating an orange/red sky and also within the photo have a flock of birds in a V formation flying towards the sunset and in the ocean have either dolphins or whales swimmung towards the sunset as well and any other animals of the ocean and sky. I have never seen an ocean sunset as I have been incarcerated for almost 20 years and I miss the aspect of nature and being free to fly around the world like a bird or a dolphin. Being in solitary confinement prohibits from touching dirt, grass, or even a tree and any part of nature or animals or anything from another earth. As long as the sunrises and sunsets everyday there is hope for life on the other side to be a part of humanity and not be treated like a caged animal or herd of cows being moved from one cave or cage to the next withought any human and social life at all.
motion to contrast with the ‘still-life’ I am living

Or snow while it is falling? Anything in MOTION!If it’s lights in traffic, I’d like a color photo. If it’s the water or snow I’d like black-n-white (if that even works to show motion)

person deprived by solitary of sight, sound, and speech
169Attached is a brief description of a typical person s/he in solitary confinement with they senses snatched away from them by the vicious oppressors. In my image I put a person behind prison walls with all of the limbs but the or faces of the face are gone (ears, eyes, mouth) cuz we can’t see, talk, or hear from our love ones causing division driving the ppl involved to insanity in the mind while the body remains in tact just like the terrible disease while your support team keeps their senses but fails to use them!Bring pain from my heart to your paint brush. Help me bleed on your portrait so ppl can recognize mass incarceration for what it really is i.e. profit for the oppressors
nice summer day with blue sky, sunshine, trees, grass, flowers, and birds
80Heres what I would like to see in my photo: a nice summer day, Blue sky with lots of sun shining down on trees, grass, flower and perhaps small animals such as birds etc. That is what I'd like to see, Being in solitary confinement with no window or any view of the outside world, I tend to forget what if looks like. Whats funny is that right now its summer time, Yet, I feel as if I’m still waiting for summer since this place obstructs the sun from shining through, Everyday seems like a gray gloomy day. So a picture with the scene I described will be appreciated.I trust your discretion. :)

The Simple Things
We take for granted:

Being there for family & friends,
extending love that never ends...
The freedom to take a walk or
go for a drive,
appreciating being alive!!!

view from my childhood bedroom window, or some cherry blossoms
178I grew up in Bed-Stuy in Brooklyn, 93 Lewis Ave, #12F. I would look out my bedroom window and dream about the world from my high perch, or at night I would wish upon stars. Getting to see the view from there or even the roof again would be incredible. I did send the current residents a letter but never got a response. An easier option would be a photo of cherry blossoms. They remind me of the impermanence of life as well as the beauty in it.With the cherry blossoms, it would be awesome if there was a pond, creek or river behind them. If you’re able to take one from the building, it should be towards the front of it.

wild, natural countryside in Donegal, Ireland, where my grandparents are from
I am writing because I heard about your photo program.
I am in Pelican Bay SHU Short Corridor. I’ve been held in isolative conditions for 17 years. The image I would like is of Northern Ireland. Specifically Donegal. Any image of the wild, natural country there in donegal would be cherished. My grandparents and great grandparents are from there. Their stories of the place remain forever entrenched in my imagination and minds eye. I never took the time to seek out images of that far away land but, since being buried in SHU, I have longed to see it.
I once had a dream of Donegal in which I was walking, barefoot, across the grass. I could literally feel the cool blades between my toes. As I woke, in my windowless cell, I felt a palpable sense of loss. It felt like I was underwater and drowning. In the waking moment I realized I’d be wading through time for the rest of my life.
So, my request to you is for an image or photo of this beautiful land that haunts my dreams.
I also want to thank you for your innovation. You’ve given choice to men who have lost the ability to choose.
So thank you...
imprisoned African American woman, surviving her past
152An image of an african american woman behind bars, standing sideways, head back, arms flaired in back of her — with a mist of her past being shedded off of her. Maybe the girl could be in color, or bars, walls could fade into color or bars, walls, & mist be in grayish hues. Example — my past: prostitution, drugs, rape, molestation and all the emotions that come with them.
*a really ugly mist — yet she’s beautiful once she sheds it in an ugly place — prison.Ugly grayish hues for everything except the woman who is colorful and beautiful even in prison. Some mist must remain on the woman to show she’s shedding it/her past.
