About the photo and the film:

The 15th was a school day and being a teacher that meant I had to be in the classroom with my high school students. This shot was taken during one of their presentations while I was wondering why do we have to institutionalize everything? We keep on disciplining knowledge, minds, bodies. I wanted to get out there, they wanted to get out there and we were stuck. So this little transgression caught my eye. It was shot on a Pentax K1000 with an Ektachrome E100SW expired in 2000. Storage of the film was unknown, so I set ISO as 64 and pushed one stop when developing.
