I enjoy photographing prisons. So, when I discovered that private photography tours could be arranged at the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, I made plans to visit. The Reformatory was the filming site for the popular movie "Shawshank Redemption".
I, along with two other photographers, were granted access to the interior of the prison from 9am until 11am. At 11am, the prison opened to the general public. I was permitted to stay, so I ended up visiting for five or six hours.
Here are some images from my visit:
