Jon Crispin's Notebook

Attica

Posted in History by joncrispin on 22/07/2010

One of the greatest aspects of being a photographer is the ability to go places and see things that are not accessible to most people.  I have been so lucky to work with Craig Williams at the New York State Museum who has given me access to all sorts of amazing places.  Sometimes we get funding to work together, and sometimes when there is no money available, he is kind enough to let me tag along and document his work.  This past Tuesday was a volunteer day for me.  The State Police in Batavia have been storing items from the 1971 Attica Prison riot and Craig went out to do a quick survey and pick up a few artifacts.  Amazing.
