Photojournalism Links Daily Digest: Sept. 10, 2014

Sep 10, 2014

Today's daily Photojournalism Links collection highlights Damon Winter's oddly beautiful and evocative monochrome images of one of the most symbolic places of the War on Terror: Camp X-Ray in Guantanamo Bay. For the U.S. authorities, the suspected terrorists and enemy combatants once held there represented the worst of humankind, whereas for many people Guantanamo Bay and Camp X-Ray, in particular, were a representation of American injustice and mistreatment. Winters' photographs of the now-closed facility are silent reminders of an era gone-by, yet one that continues to impact today's world.
