Guantanamo: If the Light Goes Out


Guantanamo: If the Light Goes Out Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For eight years Guantanamo has been home to hundreds of men, all Muslim, all detained in the aftermath of 9/11. Held in legal limbo for years and repeatedly interrogated, almost all have now been released without charge-very few have been tried in court.

Guantanamo illustrates three experiences of home: at Guantanamo naval base, home to the American community; in the camp complex where the detainees have been held; and in the homes where former detainees, never charged with any crime, find themselves trying to rebuild lives. These notions of home are brought together in an unsettling visual narrative.

Winner for Best Photographic Book at 2011 New York Photo Awards


Every time I see a rope I remember. If the light goes out unexpectedly I am back in my cell.
