Months after the attacks on the World Trade Center, a temporary detention center in Cuba’s Guantanamo Bay was housing dozens of suspected terrorists. Known as Camp X-Ray, this place was once a heavily guarded place where detainees were given just two mats, a copy of the Koran and prayer cap, plus basic hygiene products—all cramped into their 8-by-8-foot cells.

In this collection of photos from Tim Mak, he takes us back to the scene of Camp X-ray (now abandoned) with extraordinary and somewhat haunting photographs of what the site has now become—an overgrown and forgotten wasteland.
