This work forms part of the series 'Die Vier Hoeke' (The Four Corners) – gang terminology for a prison space where different rules from the outside world apply. It offers a look inside South African prisons, documenting the lives of a community often forgotten by society, where violence and overcrowding in dire conditions are prevalent.
