Guantanamo Bay Through The Eyes Of Artist Molly Crabapple

…I think that when a lot of journalists go down to Guantanamo – and everyone that I was with was an amazing journalist. They’re much more traditional journalists and they write about the details of the trial. They do investigative stuff about, like, who’s hunger-striking. They speak to the lawyers. They speak to the Guantanamo spokespeople. But they don’t really write about what the experience of covering it is like. And I felt like that could be my contribution, that I wasn’t taking myself out of it like a traditional journalist would, but rather I was trying to bring the reader there with me so that the reader would understand what it felt like to be in Guantanamo.

    Just read your article and viewed your images in Vice mag. Potent stuff. Recently watched the “Shock Doctrine” doc referencing Naomi Kleins’ work that touched on Gitmos’ role in the “War on Terror” – your images and words expanded on those reflections in a much deeper way. Thanks for being so brave. D
