The majority of the public see prison as a 'Holiday Camp'. With a Conservative government forcing inmates to work a full working week for virtually no pay, a new type of prison will need to be built to facilitate this. 'HMPark Life' is a prison located in Brockwell Park, South London. It questions this drive to turn a prison population into a cheap labour force one that works not just to provide skills to inmates in the name of 'rehabilitation' but forces offenders to be both visibly productive and punished to quench the publics ever-present blood thirst for justice.
