Robert Mack, photographer, visual artist, photographed and filmed criminally insane men for his project, Not Guilty By Reason Of Insanity. These extremely rare black and white photographs were taken in 1981 and are compassionate yet sobering portraits of insane patients many who have committed murder. The legal courts determined these men to be dangerous to themselves or others, and so they are were sent to a maximum security hospital for treatment, rather than to prison for punishment.
This body of work has received two major museum exhibitions, both in America and at the Reiss-Engelhorn Museum in Mannheim, Germany. David Fahey of the Fahey Klein gallery in Los Angeles represents the work.
Robert Mack will bring this collection to Paris this year to meet with various museums and galleries for an exhibition in France. There are over 100 silver gelatin photographs, a documentary 16 mm film, and a catalogue included in the Not Guilty By Reason Of Insanity collection.
