Drawing Guantanamo

Thursday, September 26, 2013

Janet Hamlin has been the sole court illustrator documenting the trials at the US Prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba since 2006. Her book, Sketching Guantanamo will be published in October. 

Valentino: How did you come to work at Guantanamo?

Hamlin: The Associated Press was one of my clients and it was their turn to pool report from Guantanamo. They sent me for the first three trips and after that I started going as a freelancer. So, I kind of had a rut in the road, having been there the first three times. And it is a strange venue.

Valentino: What’s strange about it?

Hamlin: Usually, in the United States we can sit in the same physical space as the charged person, but in GITMO we are in a walled, glassed-in booth in the back that’s soundproof. So, you’re drawing from a distance. You’re drawing from the back and you’re drawing with a sound delay. The other thing is you’re dealing with is the constraint of your work being signed off by the Pentagon or the Homeland Security officer. Everything has to be signed and labeled before it can go out to media.
