Moving Portraits
Martin directed the filming of ten moving portraits of survivors of the American justice system. Each person was filmed in his signature close-up style and the audio overhead is a recording of each exoneree’s interview with the artist, detailing their experience.

Martin collaborated closely with Witness to Innocence, a non-profit organization led by exonerated death row survivors who work to abolish the death penalty in the United States.
