Photographer Eric Gourlan  spent over a month in prisons in Kyrgyzstan, documenting the life of both inmates and guards. Photographs he took there provide a rare “view from the inside ” the country's prison system. Kloop.kg publishes  some of the remarkable photos that are now displayed at a museum in Bishkek.
The documentary film below also features Gourlan's photographs, offering a unique glimpse into the life of children, women, and men behind bars in the Central Asian nation. The film is mostly in Russian, but has English subtitles.
