Bastøy Prison | Photographer: Espen Eichhöfer

Bastøy Prison | Photographer: Espen Eichhöfer | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"Conventional prisons are secured by thick walls, barbed wire and guards. The prisoners are locked away for 23 hours a day. Bastoey, an island in the Oslo-fjord in Norway, is a prison without walls and fences.

Maybe it is the most liberal and ecological prison in the world. On the island you don't make out the prison at first sight. Murderers, paedophiles and other criminals live here together in shared apartments. They work in the island’s forest, with animals and on the fields. Even more the prisoners have an own beach. The images of Espen Eichhoefer show the daily routine of the detainees and deliver insight in probably the most beautiful prison of the world."- Espen Eichhöfer

 

 

Photo report's insight:

Bastøy Prison is a minimum-security prison located on Bastøy Island, Norway, about 75 kilometres south of Oslo. The facility is located on a 2.6 square kilometre island and hosts 115 inmates. Arne Kvernvik-Nilsen,governor of the prison, leads a staff of 69 prison employees. Of this staff, only five employees remain on the island overnight. The facility is about a one hour commuting distance from Oslo.

Once a prison colony for young boys, the facility now is trying to become "the first ecological prison in the world." Inmates are housed in wooden cottages and work the prison farm. During their free time, inmates have access to horseback riding, fishing, tennis, and cross-country skiing.The only access to the prison is from a ferry that departs from Horten.
