What is happening in the photo?

Laurence McKeown (front) with Jim Donnelly (left) and Chris Doherty (right) photographed in the exercise yard of the H-Block, Maze prison in 1982. The photograph was taken by a hidden camera smuggled in during visits. Taking of photographs of prisoners was prohibited. A number of small pocket cameras were smuggled in to the prison at this time. Later in 1983 the practice was stopped as an escape was being planned.
