Getting into Prison

As Steve and his team of artists can attest, it's not so easy to get inside a prison (which is probably a good thing, ultimately). We already posted photos of the group of artists waiting to get into the national women's prison in Bogotá, Colombia to do research and interviews for the BOGOTÁ  PRISON PAGEANT. After this waiting game, they have to pass through several checkpoints, and collect a series of stamps (sellos en Español). Here are photos of some of the artists' favorite sellos that they have been sporting over the course of the past few weeks:

This last one is a mouse.

Also trying to get into prison is this beautiful doggie. This dog's owner is presently locked up in El Buen Pastor women's prison. Every morning the dog comes to the gate of the prison sits outside and waits. Some of the guards give him bread and snacks. He hangs out all day, then goes somewhere at night, and is back at the gate the next morning. It is unclear how long this has been going on.
