Pen Pals of San Quentin

This collection of black and white photographs of men with dogs are the result of visits that I made as part of the Pen Pals Program.  The program has been in existence since 2005 and is a partnership between the Marin Humane Society and the inmates at San Quentin Prison. The love, care and commitment that the inmates show their charges combined with the love and adoration that the dogs show the men, blew me away
