Last October, photographer Louie Palu boarded a plane for Cuba, to document the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay. His images, of feeding tubes, razor-wire fences, cells, classrooms, and recreation areas, appeared in the January issue of The Atlantic.

When we first spoke, I asked Palu how many photographers have traveled to Guantanamo Bay. (I didn't, and I still don't, feel like we've seen many pictures from there). Several, he said, although most of them work for wire services; thus many of the same images appear in newspapers, magazines, and online.

You can find a slide show of photographs from Palu's portfolio here. What do you think of the pictures? What did you think the detention facility would look like?
