Schwarzer Tod and the Useless Eaters

All photographs were created in and around the Black Forest in Germany and Alsace, using salvaged film cameras manufactured by forced labor in Nazi Germany.

The colors, textures, shapes and multiple layers within the photographs¬†are all created using only the unique aberrations of the cameras’ optics, and the chemistry of the film. There is no software or computer manipulation in the images.

Exhibited in solo museum exhibition at Yeshiva University Museum, NYC (August 2011-April 2012)
