Art Out: Beyond Bars

In Carlos Jaramillo's latest exhibit he explores life inside and outside of Lurigancho, a prison in Lima, Peru. His photographs capture the similarities between society on "el cerro," the hill, and life inside the prison. Life that rises from the rubble above the prison echoes the life inside its walls, and Jaramillo attempts to uncover what it is that informs the hope felt by prisoners and civilians.

The depth in Jaramillo’s composition moves us to question our perception. His work explores the illusion of continuum, prompting us to sift through visual and emotional layers in his photographs. The thoughtful framing of his images calls us to explore the borders of identity. Do we assume one thing is “in” and something else is “out”? How do we define the collective? When each part of the whole is recognized, does awareness of the unique identities connect, unite, separate, or divide?
