The U.S. detention camp at Guantanamo Bay has become a controversial flashpoint of America’s “war on terror.” Magnum Photographer Paolo Pellegrin photographed the camp and its prisoners extensively in 2006. He also documented former detainees in London, Kuwait, Bahrain and Afghanistan.
War Status Iraq
by Geert van Kesteren
Four years after the start of the war in Iraq, Geert van Kesteren talks with Iraqi refugees in Jordan while leafing through his 2004 book Why Mister, Why? “Baghdad gives you three options: suicide, be a thief or be a killer.”
In this breathtaking book, photographer and sailor Jean Gaumy depicts the daily struggles of deep-sea fishermen on their open-deck trawlers, seldom in use nowadays. The dramatic black-and-white images, taken during four voyages between 1984 and 1998, are a tribute to those who live for the catch, and to a disappearing way of life.
