In the summer heat two prisoners behind the lattice of your prison cell sit and are its hands and legs by the lattice. About 700 meters of air line behind a forest peace is a well visited bathing lake. The bathers (with bath-towels, balls in the hand, partly only with trunk and t-shirt dressed) run on a way (to and of the subway) directly at the prison wall along. From this way I photographed the prisoners.The JVA Tegel is the largest German penal institution. The prison was built between 1894 and 1902.
