Sketching Guantanamo is a documentary sketchbook that covers the Guantanamo camps, and courtroom and trials of alleged terrorists. Places where the cameras are not allowed, Janet Hamlin records courtroom scenes and portraits with her coloured pencils and toned sketchbooks. She's the only sketch artist covering the trials from 2006 to the present time. The book with 150 drawings along with her commentary will provide insight into the military courts of Guantanamo, a place where information is highly censored and restricted.
It's a 172-page hardcover coming out in October 2013.
This book reminds me of Baghdad Journal and The Photographer: Into War-torn Afghanistan with Doctors Without Borders for the take on hard-hitting style of coverage.
