In jailhouse journals and interviews, they confess with candor and courage to their sex work and drug crimes. Includes chapter & 3 photos of the serial bank robber Heather Brown.

Some speak with a remarkable, epigraphic honesty….The book effectively calls attention to the impact of addiction….An intriguing account of the lives of troubled sex workers.”  –- Kirkus Reviews

Nudes in Nature photos by Mark Mathew Braunstein

PHOTOS (Nudes in Nature)

Portfolios of photos mostly around my home in the Connecticut College Arboretum.


The DEER portfolio shows my deer neighbors in their natural setting.


The NUDES in NATURE portfolio shows my dear human neighbors in their natural setting and in their natural state, which is nude. (Actually the deer too are nude.) Lechers, be adivised, no frontal nudity here!


And the several series of SEASONS in SEQUENCE teach the ephemerality of all existence.
