Isabelle Armand—Levon and Kennedy: Mississippi Innocence Project

Galerie Julian Sander / Cologne / Art

In the early 1990s, Levon Brooks and Kennedy Brewer were separately and unjustly accused of rape and murder, and thrown into jail. Victims of a racially biased and classist system, Brooks was sentenced to life imprisonment and Brewer to death. Both were innocent. After their long overdue exoneration in 2008, renowned photographer Isabelle Armand traveled to Mississippi and in a series of photographs finally tells their stories, meanwhile exposing the failures of the U.S. justice system. —E.C.
