A person sentenced to death will spend an average of 20 years locked up waiting for the date of his execution. Doing Time is a visual and physical representation of that waiting time. How life becomes a loop and space and time disappears.
The book begins with a selection of photos of the interior of a prison occasionally interrupted by a roof that becomes more and more recurring, symbolizing the monotony and passing of days. It culminates with a series of artistic representations of real last meals, by Celia A. Shapiro, producing a clash between the repetition and boringness of the previous photographs and the poppy colorful feel of the food, just like the last meal. A gesture of kindness before the end.
