Humans of Stone – Memorial to the Shoah –
It was already one a.m when I was attracted in my night walk by this dark space at the hedge of the Tiergarten park in Berlin.
Some young kids got scared when they saw my silhouette moving through thousands of granitic blocs; I decided to lay down on this cold autumn floor to translate into images what I was feeling then; this strong presence of these children, these men and women who had left for a long trip and about whom we will always remember.
Dark shadows, grey or black, yellow or white reflection, clouded sky, humans of stone, forever.
Each photographs is the sound of boys, girls, women and en gone, and still there, at Berlin Holocaust Memorial or – https://www.stiftung-denkmal.de/en/memorials/
