the book is printed!

I am thrilled to report that the book is printed and available. Click here to order, please. And the premier showing for the entire project is just a couple weeks away. I hope to see you in Arizona at The Art Gallery 4. The reception is September 5th. Join us! I think you will be amazed at the quality of the prints. Mark Muse did a masterful job to enhance the nuance and mood of the images.

This poem is included in the book and accompanies one of my favorite composites. The image of the chair with the purse hanging on the wall behind and the camp at Birkenau overlaid on it speaks to me of transport. It was the ever-present dread of being sent ‘to the East’ that broke the spirit of many victims.

Transport

The chair is still, waiting,                                                                                                                                                                                    the tree is mournful,                                                                                                                                                                                            bending and broken in places, yet living,                                                                                                                                                                   the light is delicate.

The spirit was sorrowful,                                                                                                                                                                                      life was tenuous, fragile.

Transport                                                                                                                                                                                                             And then, silence.

"Loss and Beauty is a literary work of photography based on Holocaust survivor's diaries. But it is also a uniquely involving visual experience, one that uses masterfully merged photographs to draw one in, establish and hold a mood and ultimately tell a story. Importantly, the work also asks each viewer a searching and timeless question: Can profound loss by addressed by beauty? Keron Psillas' answer, in her deeply realized book and exhibit, is yes."
