Title: Panopticon #1 The prison San Vittore Milan Description: The project named after social theory Panopticon, originally developed by French philosopher Michel Foucault in his book Discipline and Punish. The “Panopticon” refers to an experimental laboratory of power in which behaviour could be modified, and Foucault viewed the Panopticon as a symbol of the repressive, disciplinary society of surveillance. I made photographs of the prison San Vittore in Milan, Italy. To show the boundary that is standing between those ones outside the prison, and those once inside the prison. That those outside the prison can't actually see what is going on behind the walls of the prison.
