In 2012, photographer Isabelle Armand came across an article about two men who were wrongfully convicted. The men had spent almost 20 years behind bars for a crime they didn’t commit. They were exonerated after an investigation from the Innocence Project led authorities to the real perpetrator. In Levon and Kennedy, Armand presents an intimate photoessay documenting the men, their families and their environment. It seeks to raise consciousness, challenge popular perceptions about poverty and inequality in our criminal justice system, and demands that we confront these critical issues.
