The Missing Men is the story of two inmates who come of age in Washington DC’s notorious Lorton Prison and face a tough journey after release. This feature documentary is about time, the hopes and struggles of ex-offenders, and the lethal intersection between race and the criminal justice system, 30 years in the making. 

In Lorton's Darkroom is a documentary short that tells the story of inmates who come of age in DC's notorious Lorton Prison during the early days of mass incarceration, and their journey of self discovery. It speaks to the need for diverse image-makers in criminal justice, and offers lessons the project contains three decades on.
