This is @gabrielabulisova and @markisaac thanking you for following us during our takeover of the @smithsonianmagazine feed this week. It has been an honor to share our work with you, engage in a dialogue, and raise awareness of the impact of mass incarceration on families and communities in the United States. For more work and info, please visit gabrielabulisova.com or markisaac.net. Thank you once again to Smithsonian Magazine for this opportunity and for their foresight in addressing this issue.

In this final image, Sandra Koger surveys the family apartment in Capitol Heights, MD just after her three grandchildren, Isaiah, Demetri, and Dashawn, left for school, offering a rare moment of peace and quiet. The absence of Sherrie Harris, the boys’ mother, loomed over the family for a full decade as Sherrie served a long-term prison sentence in West Virginia. Sandra was forced to step in as main caregiver for the three children, in part because William, the boys’ father, was in and out of prison himself. In the fall, Sherrie was released from prison and entered a halfway house, and the boys are able to visit her on weekends. Now, Sherrie will likely be released from the halfway house within days, to the boys’ delight, but she still faces difficult days ahead rebuilding her life and reconnecting with her family.
