Local freelance photographer Justin Clemons was hired by Marie Claire UK to photograph two men on Texas' Death Row. (Note: "Within a month of the shoot, both inmates were dead.")
The current issue of Photo District News asks Clemons how he shot the assignment. Read about Clemons' lighting as he explains how he had to think quickly and problem solve in a tense situation!
See more examples of Clemons' style here and additional photos from his Death Row shoot after the jump.
