Book of the Week
by Carl De Keyzer
While in Siberia for a photo exhibition and workshop, Magnum photographer Carl De Keyzer had the chance to visit a local prison camp. Expecting Solzhenitsyn's grim gulags, De Keyzer instead toured what was "sort of a Disneyland ... a cheap amusement park." Captivated by the strange juxtaposition, De Keyzer returned numerous times to Siberia's gulags-turned-prison-camps. His work provides a window into this rare world.
