End of Line


Product description

The book “End of Line” deals with the last path of condemned men in Texas (USA). In this state about 300 people sentenced to death are waiting for their execution. Often they wait for years, trapped in a small holding cell in the Allan B. Polunsky Unit without any contact to others.

The executions then happen in the Huntsville Unit, which is the oldest prison in Texas and about 60 miles away. This facility is also well known as “The Wall”. The pictures of this exhibition document the very last path of those condemned to deathrow

and offer personal insights in the life of two of them. “End of Line” is supposed to provide the viewer with a better understanding for what it's like to spend the last days in a place like the Huntsville Unit.

In the course of the photo shoots Jim Willett, a former prison guard, also talks about 89 executions he had observed in three years in Huntsville.

A snapshot of the condemned Charles “Chucky” Mamou and Arnold Prieto Jr. happened back in January 2014 together with an exclusive interview. Since 1976 506 prisoners have been executed in the state of Texas. In all of America 3359 people share that fate.
