"A Walk Through the New Mexico State Penitentiary" is a photoessay about the abandoned jail and its gatekeeper.
The New Mexico State Penitentiary closed in 1998. Today, one guard remains; Rick LaMonda. During his twenty-plus years at the prison, LaMonda experienced its violent history. Now, he opens the decaying building for film crews and photographers.
Kate Mackley is an editorial photographer whose photos often reflect quiet, inspirational moments.
