Doing Time tells the story of 175 years of Winchester Prison history, the harsh prison regimes of the past and today’s focus on education, training and reform.
Contemporary prison life is revealed in a series of interviews with staff while the impact of what often can be life-changing education and training, healthcare and counselling is told in the words of prisoners who have turned their lives around at HMP Winchester.
The book and exhibition were written by Winchester Magazine editor Liz Kavanagh who spent over six months visiting the prison before, after and during the pandemic when prisoners were almost permanently locked in cells.
Photography by award-winning Winchester photographer Javaid Akhtar features throughout, revealing the stark reality of prison life today.
