This series leads through various prisons in southern Germany and documents the absence of privacy inside the institutions. Over the span of several months I have portrayed the most diverse jails and brought them together in this series. The title „JVA“ is the German abbreviation for the term “Justizvollzugsanstalt”. In Germany this term is used to describe a prison authority whose task it is to carry out sentences of imprisonment or youth custody. The prisons of Freiburg, Heilbronn, Offenburg and Rottenburg are represented.
