The Innocent: Death Row Exonerees


The Ku Klux Klan rallying in support of a black man’s execution in Texas. The North Carolina death row warden wheeling a gurney into the execution chamber. Weeping family members at the moment of a loved one’s execution.

These are just a few of the images captured in Scott Langley’s chilling death penalty documentary photography project, which is the most comprehensive collection of original death penalty photographs available from one source.

The documentary includes execution vigils, inside an execution chamber, the hours leading up to an execution, portraits of exonerated death row prisoners, celebrities opposed to the death penalty, marches, demonstrations and candid emotional and prayerful moments in the context of the death penalty in the United States.

The project started in 1999 and continues today, providing images to publications, educational institutions and national organizations in the work to educate about capital punishment.

"It would become harder to execute men one after another, as is done in our country today, if those executions were translated into vivid images in the popular imagination."
