Sara Bennett’s first book of photography, Spirit on the Inside, doubles as a collection of character evidence. Published in 2013, it portrays women who, years after being released from the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, in New York, still treasure memories of their fellow-inmate Judith Clark, a getaway driver in the Brink’s robbery, in 1981, in Rockland County, which left two police officers and one security guard dead. At the time of the book’s publication, Clark, a former member of the Weather Underground, was serving seventy-five years to life. She was, at once, Bennett’s original muse and her highest-profile client.
