LIVING IN A PRISON

Since April 2020 some 40 homeless people live in The Passage, the women's wing of the former Overmaze prison in Maastricht. Fully furnished with IKEA furniture and living accessories. The move had become necessary because the original location did not meet the corona measures.

I stayed in The Passage for two months in the summer of 2020 to portray the residents in their new environment.

I discovered that the group is more mixed than expected. In addition to a hard core "diehards", who can no longer be motivated for anything, I also met people who in no way meet the cliché image of the homeless person.
