Edmund Clark’s Guantanamo Project

David Campbell

7 November 2010

“I was prompted to think about Clark’s powerful project when @martincoward tweeted this week that in Clark’s photographers the ‘objects speak of their implication in political violence’. Clarks portrayal of three experiences of home – the base where prisoners are detained and the American military community lives, as well as the houses where former inmates now reside – is concerned with the objects and spaces of home. Martin’s remark calls attention, therefore, to the way situations do not need a face to convey their significance.”
