Press photographs (with agency stamps from Keystone, AGIP, and United Press Photos) taken around the time of the trial and imprisonment of Regis Debray in Muyupampa, Bolivia. Debray, a Paris-trained philosopher and former professor at the University of Havana, was arrested as an associate of Che Guevara in August 1967 and sentenced to 30 years in prison; he was released in 1970 after sustained protests.
Photos show Debray in prison uniform on August 8th; in civilian clothes in front of a bank of microphones at an August 14 press conference following a hunger strike; walking in the prison yard escorted by an armed guard; and with his wife, Elizabeth Burgos, after his release. Captions (all but one in French) give descriptions and expanatory context.
