Author and photographer, Marc Wilson, in conversation with Ben Barkow, former Director of the Wiener Holocaust Library, will talk about his project to photograph Holocaust sites across Nazi-occupied Europe. Based around 22 Holocaust survivor stories (including Second and Third Generation) 370 photographs are presented in his book to be published in September.
As a member of the Fourth Generation, Marc reflects: ‘Twenty-one former strangers (but now friends) learning more about my own family, where it fits in to both the work and the history and of course in my life. How do you include such personal history in a wider body of work such as this? How do you not become so consumed that it blinds you to the making of the work, to remain calm but passionate, quiet but screaming, clear-eyed but filled with tears.’
Marc will describe his approach to his work and its impact upon him. There will be a Q&A following the talk. Start time 6.20pm for 6.30pm GMT to give everyone time to set up and check their Zoom connection. To register go to: marc-wilson.eventbrite.co.uk
