Angola Prison Rodeo

Angola Prison Rodeo

My friend and co-worker Lauren McGaughy helped me out in covering the Angola Prison Rodeo — she wrote the story and I took the photos. At first I figured I would be able to do both, but Angola requires that all media have an escort through the hobby-craft and rodeo area so as to make sure relations with inmates stay within regulations. That means the conversations are slightly more strained, and having someone to distract the inmates so they could stay comfortable enough to take decent photos was key. Here’s here story (, but click on the photo to see the rest of the images I took.
