The majority of the public see prison as a ‘Holiday Camp’. With a Conservative government forcing inmates to work a full working week for virtually no pay, a new type of prison will need to be built to facilitate this. ‘HMPark Life’ is a prison located in Brockwell Park, South London. It questions this drive to turn a prison population into a cheap labour force – one that works not just to provide skills to inmates in the name of ‘rehabilitation’ but forces offenders to be both visibly productive and punished to quench the public’s ever-present blood thirst for justice.
