Product Description
Published to coincide with a major exhibit at the International Center of Photography in New York, Written in Memory is artist Jeff Wolin's unique tribute to the spirit and courage of those who survived the Holocaust. In these penetrating portraits, words of Holocaust survivors are imprinted directly on the images, like numbers tattooed on forearms and pain etched forever in the memory. Faded snapshots of the survivors from decades ago reinforce the idea of remembrance and the power that photographs carry. The women and men pictured here have reached back into a dark place in order to bring an overwhelming and horrific piece of history down to human scale. These images, as well as the stories written on them, are intimate, disturbing, and profoundly moving.
