Edmund Clark: Guantanamo Bay

Edmund Clark: Guantanamo Bay
Dewi Lewis Publishing
This book illustrates three experiences of home affiliated with the Guantanamo naval base: the camp complex where the detainees are held; where the officers live and the homes of former detainees. These notions of home are brought together in an unsettling narrative that emulates the disorientation central to the Guantanamo interrogation and incarceration techniques. It also explores the legacy of disturbance these experiences have in the minds and memories of these men.

"When you are suspended by a rope you can recover, but every time I see a rope I remember. If the light goes out unexpectedly in a room, I am back in my cell." — Binyam Mohamed, Prisoner #1458
