13 years after the military prison opened, Guantanamo Bay Naval Base is home to various detainees from around the Middle East as well as US service-men and women who (unlike the prisoners) can avail themselves of the fine beaches and the McDonalds, Taco Bell, Subway and other fast-food restaurants. Their living conditions are documented by Debi Cornwall in an exhibition at the Belfast Photo Festival; the images are housed in a shipping container in front of St. Anne’s cathedral. A piece from Alma Haser‘s Cosmic Surgery series can be seen in the centre of the wide shot, below.
