Miracle Village

Gene-with-his-dog-Killer--012

Photojournalist Sofia Valiente has chosen to live and work with sex offenders. Not a choice many would make but what makes it even more unusual is that these offenders live together in their own town in Florida known as Miracle Village. It has led to a book of the same known which aims to show this vilified population in an entirely new light. Handwritten confessions live alongside touching portraits and personal belongings. They create an overall impression of men, and occasionally women, marooned in some remote outpost and left to contemplate something that can never be undone.
