Welcome to Camp America

Inside Guantánamo Bay

Text by Moazzam Begg, Fred Ritchin.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Debi Cornwall: Welcome to Camp America.'

Welcome to Camp America is Brooklyn-based conceptual documentary artist and former civil rights attorney Debi Cornwall’s vivid and disorienting glimpse into the US Naval Station in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba—known as “Gitmo”—through photographs, once-classified government documents and first-person accounts.

The book gathers three series: Gitmo at Home, Gitmo at Play showing residential and leisure spaces of both prisoners and guards; Gitmo on Sale, depicting the commodification of American military power through gift-shop souvenirs; and Beyond Gitmo, investigating life after detention with 14 men once held as accused terrorists, now cleared and freed, living in nine countries from Albania to Qatar. Environmental portraits in the free world replicate conditions of military regulation photography at Guantánamo Bay: no faces are shown.

With unique construction in English and Arabic, the book seeks common ground while asking provocative questions about compromises made between humanity and fear in the post-9/11 era.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Bookforum

David O'Neill

These images ask us to consider the crude and insidious forces that have kept the bad dudes and the rest of us folks as limp and compliant as possible.

Photo-eye Blog

Forrest Soper

...this book needs to be experienced personally to grasp its full impact...The relatively innocent photographs are paired with text and evidence so alarming that it hardly seems real.

Mother Jones

Mark Murrmann

…an exhaustively researched, exceptionally photographed documentation of one the most heavily guarded prisons in the world.

The New York Times Magazine

Teju Cole

...a sustained look at a shameful and ongoing violation of human decency by the U.S. government.

Huck

A surreal portrait of life inside Guantánamo Bay, Camp America. Photographer Debi Cornwall steps inside the walls of the infamous US military prison, exposing an uncanny world of gift shops, bowling alleys and beachfront views.

The Intercept

Siddhartha Mitter

For every image that feels familiar, there is another that breeds a fresh kind of upset.

Art in America

Michael McCanne

Cornwall was able to capture a sense of the material life of Guantánamo, for both detainees and the soldiers guarding them.
