Marcus is 30 years old and has spent the last three years in the Zeithain prison in Saxony. I meet him for the first time in the prison when he gives a concert for other inmates with his prison band "El Mono".
In our first conversation, Marcus opens up: "I'm ashamed that I'm in prison. Music helps me to process my mistakes." Drug problems brought him here, and he is spending his last six months until his release in the open prison (OV). Here we meet again and again, talk about his life after prison, his dreams and fears. "I try to rule out the possibility of having to come back here," says Marcus.
The photos were taken during his last months in the OV, Marcus has since been released.
