After taking repeatedly visits to former nazi concentration camp Gross-Rosen (Rogoznica) in Lower Silesia (Poland) and attempting to photograph this (non-)place, there soon arose dilemmas associated with the issue of representation. It was only until I found the epitaph in the village Rogoznica built into the wall of the church grounds, which was almost all worn down, when I realized that in the dialogue between this and the photograph of the quarry (which, moreover, was active for a long time before and after the war) may appear the strength of this parallel.

The village, which is located next to the former camp (and from which it took its name), with worn down by time epitaph, let me in some way to experience the unimaginable. Experience which is mediated by photography. Those two places were so different from each other in the past, but remain one.
