Survivor : a portrait of the survivors of the Holocaust / Harry Borden; foreword by Howard Jacobson

Publication | Library Call Number: D804.195 .B67 2017

"Over the course of five years, award-winning photographer Harry Borden has travelled the globe photographing survivors of the Holocaust. The people featured vary in age, gender and nationality, but are tied together by their experience and survival of one of the darkest moments in human history. Each memorable photograph is accompanied by a handwritten note from the sitter, ranging from poems, to memories, to hopes for the future, creating a strong sense of intimacy between sitter and reader. This intimacy is amplified by the home settings of many of the photographs, along with the photographer's use of available light at each scene. At the end of the book is a section providing additional information about each subject, detailing how and what they survived."--Front flap.
