Russian penal system narration by James Hill

James Hill became the European contract photographer for The New York Times in 1995 and has been based in Moscow and Rome.

He produced a remarkable behind-the-scenes look at the Russian penal system made famous by words — those of Solzhenitzyn’s devastating portrait of the gulag.

The pictures appeared in the Times and can be seen on their website through a NY times multimedia project with Hill’s narration. Hill has been on the Summit faculty twice.
