My thanks to @tintypes for doing this photo shoot in Brooklyn New York , amazing work that is still done just as the first photography ever . #amazingskill
The art of having to sit on my Tuckus for so long to set the image is a true example of the patience & serenity of art. The skill of a photographer is a trade that has enriched mankind since it’s beginning.

At times we get caught up in fiction and reading stories of fantasy. But as much as being trapped in a hostile land , where death can come any day or night in a box 24 hours a day a political prisoner hoping that your country will save your life , sounds like a fiction novel … This is a true tale of courage and the human determination to survive . Pick up a copy of my comrades memoir and step into a world that may just change your mind about how we treat our incarcerated @sshourd #wemakechange

#incarceratednation @solitarywatch @sshourd making a presence that needs to be felt as she speaks on the horrors of being in solitary confinement in Iran and how everyday could have been her last .
