Rugby Prison Ward in Argentina

I just posted photos of the Argentinian rugby sides of 1910 and 2013. As I putzed around the internet in search of those photos, I stumbled across this gem of a photo essay published just a couple of days ago in the New York Times.

It's well worth taking a look at. Photographer Rosario Heer went to Buenos Aires for a sweet-n-easy gig of photographing rich kids plays rugby for the clubs of the metropolis. She ended up on a five-month project documenting the lives of a prison ward dedicated to rugby, and produced the book Try. Prisoners who want to play and show good conduct qualify for the ward. Every three months they are allowed a game outside the prison walls.
