‘Survivors’ was born during my recent journey through the Balkans, the Caucasus and the Middle East; finding my path littered with places where, at some point in history, the ground had been soaked with the blood of the innocent.
I wanted to find out what had happened to those left behind, to record their stories and create a visual record of their still being around, against the odds. What I found was a wealth of humanity.
This ongoing project is made in dialogue with survivors of genocides throughout the world. Employing portrait photography and voice recording, the work explores themes of survival and representation.
