One of the Most Powerful Artistic Documentaries Available Oct 30, 2004
GHETTO takes us places we never knew about or ever thought we could go. But with COLORS Magazine editors Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin there is now a beautifully designed and executed portfolio of twelve contemporary 'ghettos' from a Leisure World in the USA to Psychiatric Hospitals in Cuba and Italy, to prisons in Pollsmorr South Africa and and Italy, Star City military compound in Russia, gypsy camps in Macedonia, and Cigre, Kurdistan and Hong Kong. Over the months this project absorbed the editors approached each ghetto with the same process: identify the individuals there, ask the same basic questions about their needs, feelings, survival and at the same time photograph those interviewed and the surroundings in which they found themselves.Rarely has a volume been so non-biased and empathetic as this valuable journal. There is no sensationalism of subject matter, no abuse of individual privacy, only a thoroughly artistic survey of ghettoized groups of people and their responses to their conditions. A Very powerful document - and a very beautifully designed and constructed volume. Grady Harp, October 2004
