Item description for Lucinda Devlin: The Omega Suites by Lucinda Devlin & Susanne Breidenbach...

Steidl Collectors Series During the early 90s, Lucinda Devlin systematically took photographs of gas chambers, injection rooms, electric chairs and death cells in rural towns and cities of the United States. She entitled the series Omega Suites--alluding to the final letter of the Greek alphabet as a metaphor for the end and for the unusually luxurious accommodations found there. Seemingly an examination of the death penalty, her austere, haunting images are actually metaphors that question the attitude to this issue found throughout America, where, although 70 percent of citizens support the death penalty, a few states are currently reconsidering their laws and imposing moratoriums or stays for the more that 3,000 Americans currently on death row, who will wait an average of 10 years before being executed. Icy and compelling, the photographs present a clearly defined and hermetically sealed concept of the world which is characterized by taking extreme measures against the ominous--instead of attempting integration. And they do so in a precise, exquisite and seductive way, while being intellectually repellent.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lucinda Devlin: The Omega Suites?

Chiling and amazing  Jun 13, 2001
This is a very unique book with pictures of execution facilities in the departments of corrections in urban USA. The serenity and artisticity of the pictures strongly collide with the raw reality of the function of the execution rooms. There is not a single person on any picture. Beautiful and chilling.

By the way, though i am pro death penalty, i suggest that not even a dog should be executed in the Idaho State Penitentiary, Boise, Idaho. It lacks class
