Photos by @lucasfogliaphoto. Rikers Island is New York City’s main jail complex. There are three organic gardens on the island, run by the Horticultural Society of New York. Prisoners tend flowers, fruits, and vegetables, even as riots, lockdowns, and solitary confinement occur in the nearby buildings. “If we could stay here all day that would be wonderful,” said one inmate named Peter. “It’s the only place we feel like human beings.” To see more photographs from the gardens on Rikers Island, visit Aperture Foundation’s Prison Nation exhibition and publication @aperturefnd in New York City.
