MONOLOGUE OF THE LENS
The Monologue of the Lens Series is a meditation on time and memory revealed as a document of details.
In their silent universe – the snails and the stones were simply there, and so were the faces of the children. I recognized one, the face of Anne Frank, a fragment of many faces from the Children’s Memorial Monument build in memory of one million Jewish children who died during the Second World War. The aged gravestone, the colorful snails and photographs of children’s faces surrounded by stones connected and guided the reality of my experience. All the photographs are from the Jewish Cemetery in Warsaw with the exception of the last image, which is an interior of Orla Synagogue located in the Northeast/Eastern part of Poland near Bialystok.
