The few images seen here were created to represent the 394 inmates currently incarcerated on Florida’s death row. They were made directly from the mugshots of each inmate currently serving time there. The variation of color and tonality is a direct result of each individual inmate’s portrait with no additional color manipulation—done so by simply eliminating all detail within each mugshot. By doing so a spectrum of color washes are all that is left, serving both as a roster of Florida’s death row and a collection of beautiful color fields meant to be seen together as a whole.
