The Golden State examines California's death row, the largest death row population in the United States (currently at 746).  The body of work was created using state provided information and mugshots for the entire 746 predominantly male death row inmates, organized and compiled by last names with each layer treated identically.  The resulting composite portraits confront the undeniable racial makeup of California's death row (where 66.75% are minorities*) as well as the inevitable loss of identity created by mass incarceration.  This is a small selection of the twenty-six pieces that were created.
