Laura Shindollar’s series, ‘I Love the Romance of Crime’, is about her fascination with old prisons and criminals in general. She uses a low-resolution plastic camera to photograph well-known prisons which are now being used as tourist destinations or movie sets. The empty places she photographs have sobering and tragic histories, yet their architectural style often resemble romantic castles or fortresses.

“Along this way, outside the prison gates, I love the romance of crime.”, from “Sister, I’m a Poet” by Morrissey.

Laura lives in South Bend, Indiana, and received a BFA in Photography from Memphis College of Art in 1998. She uses both traditional and low-tech cameras in her photographic work. She has exhibited nationally, and has worked as a Teaching Assistant at the South Bend Museum of Art.
