The Innocents

May 1- July 1

Featuring 45 photographs by award-winning photographer Taryn Simon, The Innocents provides a unique glimpse of the wrongly condemned. The exhibition has been produced in collaboration with the Innocence Project, an organization created by leading defense attorneys Peter Neufeld and Barry Scheck that seeks to free prisoners who have been wrongly convicted. The compelling photographs in the exhibition explore the emotions that remain long after the subjects have been freed.

The Innocents is organized by Umbrage Editions and is accompanied by a full-color catalogue. The de Saisset Museum presentation of the exhibition is in conjunction with the Northern California Innocence Project, which is based at Santa Clara University.
