A photographic essay on women in seclusion. By Patricia Aridjis. What would you do if I stole from you- Natalia asked me with some malice. You wouldn't- I replied. Upon listening to our conversation, Juan Carlos, the inmate's five-year-old son shouted: No, mom, don't do it because they put you in jail! - -The jail doesn't exist- assured the woman after a brief silence Where is it jail, - I asked the boy in his mother's cell - out there, where the policemen are - he answered pointing to the window. Conversation with Natalia and Juan Carlos in the women's prison in Tepepan, Mexico City, 2002. The women's prison contains hundreds of sad stories, stories of abandonment, mistreatment, unconditional love; stories told over and over again as a painful litany that cannot be forgotten. To enter you have to go through a long tunnel that leads to an almost entirely feminine world, a world without bright colors, only beige and navy blue for the uniforms. An invisible seal on the forearm makes the difference between those who visit for a few hours and those who stay for years or simply never go out. I have been seven years, four months and two weeks. Accurate, endless accounts. Time that passes slowly and suddenly turns into years. Black hours. The visits represent a special event, they are fresh air, freedom that comes from outside. There are children who were born there, and their eyes have never seen any other light than the one that passes through the bars. Above all, those who do not have someone to take care of them outside the prison. In that case, they remain in the custody of government institutions as well as when the permissible period established by the authority is completed.e marca la autoridad.
