These Photos Plunge You Into the Inner Madness of Guantánamo – Mother Jones:

“Debi Cornwall’s Welcome to Camp America: Inside Guantánamo Bay (Radius Books) is an exhaustively researched, exceptionally photographed documentation of one the most heavily guarded prisons in the world. The way in which photographs, interviews, and government documents intersect and overlap in a multifaceted layout makes the physical book itself becomes important to the narrative. As Cornwall says, the fold-over pages and other layout elements invite the reader to either ‘take what is given or choose to dig a little deeper.’  It’s rare to find a photobook in which the book doesn’t just act as an outlet, but actually amplifies the power of the work within.”
