Reidsville, GA — A maximum security prison stands in the heart of Georgia, steeped in history having housed prisoners from all walks of life, from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to serial killer Wayne Williams. Now, over 1550 of Georgia’s most feared and violent inmates have found themselves locked within the Georgia State Prison’s walls (otherwise known as Reidsville State Prison), surrounded by endless rows of razor wire and guard towers watching their every move; they have tactical squads and canine units on standby. The prisoners work, but are not paid for their service to the state.
Russ Bryant, former Army Ranger and professional photographer, gave SOFREP an exclusive inside look at one of Georgia’s most secure prisons.
