Carl de Keyzer ZONA


Zona, Siberian prison camps. This successful photo book from Carl De Keyzer was published in 2003. Eight years later, it is being released again... 

Carl proudly presents a premier in European photography: Zona for iPad.

During two years, 2000-2002, Carl de Keyzer has documented daily life in 35 of the 135 prison camps in the region of Krasnojarsk, Siberia. In a territory as big as Europe, prisoners live in a "country" of their own, with specific rules and estheticus. Headed by one General in charge, they constitute a free labour force of 1.000.000 men and women gathered in camps, mostly built in the 1930's , as described by Soljenytsin in his novel: "The Gulag Archipelago".

Look at the faces, and then the eyes, of the prisoners.
There is a calm despair there, and it tells a disturbing story.

Zona, after it's first release in 2003, is now also available on iPad.
This photographic journal of Siberian contemporary prison camps is a must have collector's item. It is filled with exclusive behind-the-scene material, stories, music and lots of other extra's.

Music optimized for use with headphones.

Carl De Keyzer started his career as a freelance photographer in 1982 while supporting himself as a photography instructor at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent. His interest in the work of other photographers led him to co-found and co-direct the XYZ Photography gallery. A Magnum nominee in 1990, he became a full member in 1994.
