Eastern State Penitentiary

When Eastern State Penitentiary opened in 1829, visitors from around the world marveled at its grand architecture and radical philosophy. With its high arched cathedral and more than 1,000 skylights, the building feels more like a religious space than a prison. Photo by Elena Bouvier/Eastern State Penitentiary.
