Artist’s Talk: “Guantanamo Bay and The Library at Camp Delta” with Christopher Sims

September 30, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Photographer Chris Sims of the Duke Center for Documentary Studies traveled to the Guantanamo Bay detention center. Military restrictions made it impractical to photograph people, so he photographed the environments that people there have created and that they inhabit. One set of photos is specifically about the prisoners’ library; the other about the built environment on and around the camp generally. Sims recently received the Arte Laguna Prize. This event will be held at Davis Library at UNC-Chapel Hill. 5 p.m. / Reception and exhibit viewing, 1st floor Gallery, Davis Library 5:45 p.m. / Program, Research Hub, 2nd Floor, Davis Library
