"Photographer Taryn Simon brings us face-to-face with individuals falsely accused and convicted. While mugshots and photo arrays are used to condemn and imprison these innocents, Simon has turned the camera around to document these victims of mistaken identity and perverted justice. Through Simon's interviews with each, the men and women in this book confront the paradox of innocence and imprisonment, the inability to recover the years stolen from them, and the states' unconscionable refusal to compensate them or ease their traumatic transition to civilian life."--BOOK JACKET.
