This project is currently in the process of development and is intended to culminate in a book. It includes a series of photographs of the Buchenwald concentration camp. It reaches beyond the recounting of this place’s horrific past, seeking to explore the enduring impact of the historical events on the consciousness of contemporary society. 

The core of this work stems from my personal encounter during my initial visit to the camp, an unexpected moment when it was enveloped in a thick fog. The sudden emergence of natural beauty in a location heavy with terror and suffering evoked a very complex feeling. It served as a metaphor, hinting at the potential redemption and remedy for a world scarred by past horrors. During that moment a profound sense of emptiness and stillness felt like a scar, a lasting reminder of the significant absence of something important. 

The project engages with critical questions: How can we grapple with the collective grief and trauma of the past? Can beauty provide any solace? And how can we, as contemporaries, perceive and communicate the memory of such dramatic events? 

This work offers an invitation to engage in reflection and dialogue, to immerse oneself in the collective memory, and to understand its influence on our present condition. This is not merely a factual report of the camp, but rather an art-documentary exploration of memory and sentiment.
