Documentation of the polish-german-israeli photo workshop 2007-2008
The main goal of our seminars was to introduce the discrepancies between Oświęcim the town and Auschwitz the former camp.
Due to the professional preparation of the participants as well as their personal commitment works were created which show the honest and sincere reactions to specific places visited during the seminar. The different perspectives and approaches to photography, displayed by the participants, brought about diversity but also harmony as can be seen in the exhibition and in the catalogue. The works reveal a subtle, nuanced approach towards the subject; the viewe can sense optimism alongside mourning, resurrection alongside destruction, structure along chaos.
