Letters of Support is a series inspired by letters written on behalf of a defendant by his loved ones. Addressed to a judge, the texts describe positive memories of the defendant and are presented in the hope of lessening a criminal sentence. By emphasizing an individual’s identity as distinct from the accusations that define him in court, Letters of Support serves as a counterweight to the bureaucratic anonymity of other courtroom documents.
