Carl De Keyser

Between 2000 and 2002, Carl de Keyzer spent several months in Siberia’s Krasnoyarsk region, taking pictures of everyday life in the camps. The photos he brought back are a startling departure from the commonly held idea of the camps. In one camp for women, a room has been converted into a discotheque for the space of a few hours; there are pictures of a marriage between prisoners, a makeshift shower located outside in 50 below weather, two prisoners playing tennis … without a ball.
