Poignant photos reveal distressing reality of prison life in Texas in the 1960s
The photographs, taken by 73-year-old Danny Lyon, reveal a look inside the Texas penitentiary system in 1967 and 1968, including Ellis where the most dangerous prisoners lived. Lyon traveled to Huntsville, Texas and visited and photographed several prison units in the Texas Department of Corrections. The photo book, Conversations With the Dead, was originally published in 1971, however a new edition of the book was published last month.
