NEW WORK, LOSS AND BEAUTY: A Song of Death and dying
The work for the second part of Loss and Beauty is nearly complete. Numerous trips to Poland, Lithuania, Ukraine, and the Czech Republic have concluded and I’m pleased with some of the imagery. My intent for Part 2 is to illustrate the events dubbed the Holocaust by Bullets. This term was created by Father Patrick DesBois, a Catholic priest who has dedicated more than twelve years to discovering and recording sites of massacres that took place in Eastern Europe before the killing centers came into being. In January, March and April of 2023 I hope to conclude the photography phase of the project. A new book for Loss and Beauty will be published, including new essays from renowned scholars, Dr. Irina Chymreva and Dr. Tomasz Cebulski.
If you are interested in accompanying me, privately, during the early spring, please be in touch. I’ll be taking one or two guests on several of the trips. I always use guides and world-class scholars to help me achieve greater depth of understanding to inform my work. This means, for potential guests, an in-depth opportunity to create awareness and make more meaningful images of this horrific time in our collective history.
Here are just a few images that represent the project.
