Loss and Beauty
“Loss and Beauty is a literary work of photography based on Holocaust survivor’s diaries. But it is also a uniquely involving visual experience, one that uses masterfully merged photographs to draw one in, establish and hold a mood and ultimately tell a story. Importantly, the work also asks each viewer a searching and timeless question: Can profound loss be addressed by beauty? Keron Psillas’ answer, in her deeply realized book and exhibit, is yes.”
– Sam Abell
"Looking at the images, I feel the fear, sadness and sorrow that must have haunted her on her long and arduous way to cope with the questions and thoughts that stirred her so deeply. Keron did not want to give up hope, light, beauty. She filled her photos with the images and the forces of her soul. With her humanity. And created a shining example of the importance of beauty and love and the power of creativity in the struggle to overcome darkness and evil."
