In 2005, The New York Times Magazine asked Andres Serrano to produce images of torture for the cover page and lead article What We Don’t Talk About When We Talk About Torture by Joseph Lelyveld. Ten years on, in 2015, Andres Serrano returned to the subject, collaborating with a/political on his most ambitious project to date. Over the course of the year, Serrano gained access to a number of restricted sites and individuals. The photographs developed as a cabinet of curiosity, following the evolution of punitive and coercive techniques into its modern day manifestation.
