image00-2For Fangers Pårørende (FFP) put on an exhibition called Behind the Wall. This was a photography project for children with parents in prison in Norway. A group of young people with parents in prison were allowed to take pictures in Ullersmo, a high-security prison outside of Oslo. The children were given photography lessons and a camera and allowed into the prison in order to photograph them. This was a way for children to develop a better understanding of prison as well as express what the prison meant to them. After the photos were taken, an exhibition was held to showcase the children’s work.
