Belgian photographer Carl De Keyzer began working as a reporter in 1982 simulteneously teaching photography art in the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Today he’s a holder of Book Award from the festival in Arls. His works are regularly demonstrated in European galleries and art spaces.

It took Keyzer eleven months to create a photoproject “Forced labor camp” devoted to Russian prisons. He visited and photographed around 40 facilities of the Krasnoyarsk region that had been parts of GULAG in the past.

      • Yes seriously. Those uniforms look like something out of a 1930s Gulag. These photos survey a Soviet Gulag for teenagers. These prisons-for-kids are a horror show if I ever saw one.

        I agree with most that young males need some discipline ….but this nightmare place?

  1. Really sad how many poor, especially provincial people wind up in prison. And the prisons still look like crap even after all the money that was supposed to be allotted for improvements and repair.

  2. Sad…..these boys go from one hell to a worse one. Animals in zoos are treated better.

    Those uniforms look like the clothes they wear on death row.
