The purpose of this paper is to describe a Framed Portrait Experience (FPE) that involved individuals convict in prison. This experience combines the technique of photographic portrait and autobiographical narration. These tools have been used to ease the process of integration of thoughts, feelings and memories, and to gain a deeper understanding of himself, and to increase on one hand the awareness of their own present and on the other hand the prospects of planning the future. The intervention was divided into six narrative meetings, followed by photographic sessions. A case is presented, enriched by its related photographs, which will enhance the description of the intervention.
Keywords: Framed Portrait Experience, photography, autobiographical narration, prisoners.
