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.
