The Juvenile Detention Center is a special place for those who live here temporarily; it is a punishment and indispensable support.
The inmates of this correction facility are youngsters, whose life took a painfully wrong turn. They caught incorrect demeanor patterns at home and later committed crime.
The aim of the institution is to correct these wrong behavioral patterns, distorted moral standards and values through edification and support so this young people can reintegrate into society.
There are special home-groups for the most problematic juveniles, those who struggle with alcohol, drug dependency or behavior problems.
The tension between punishment and educational purposes makes the institution to restrict the freedom of these youngsters while they do everything they can to improve them.
As a photographer during the last couple of years I spent significant amount of time with the inmates, who are sentenced for theft, robbery or other guilty acts. I gained insights of their closed community, which rejects and expels any outsider with a deep, instinctive emotional reaction, coming from their guts. The first pictures were taken nearly after a month, weeks were invested to blend in without camera.
