The experience inspired him to attempt to make photographs that were not the stereotypic images of prison life. After that first tour, he received permission to go back to and take photos in 2013, accompanied by a correctional officer at all times. Dismas Church (The Church of the Good Thief) was constructed by the inmates under the supervision of a correctional officer who taught them stone cutting.
