Joao Canziani, a New York City-based editorial and commercial photographer, is usually on the hunt for personal projects when not shooting assignments. He says, “I’ve always been fascinated by people who are a little different, or think differently, from the rest.” Canziani was intrigued by his friend’s mom, Duston Spear, an art teacher who started teaching classes at a female maximum security prison. He was impressed by how she was unfazed by the intensity of the setting and focused on the therapeutic knowledge she was imparting to aid in the rehabilitation of the women.
