DARK LENS: IMAGING GERMANY, 1945

Written by Meltzer, Francoise
The ruins of war have long held the power to stupefy and appall. Can such ruins ever be persuasively depicted and comprehended? Can images of them force us to identify with the suffering of the enemy and raise uncomfortable questions about forgiveness and revenge?

PERSECUTION OF THE JEWS IN PHOTOGRAPHS: THE NETHERLANDS 1940-1945

Written by Somers, Erik
The Persecution of the Jews in Photographs, the Netherlands 1940-1945 is the first book of its kind on the subject. Both the professional photographers commissioned by the occupying forces and amateurs took moving photographs. On 10 May 1940, the day of the German invasion, there were 140,000 Jewish inhabitants living in the Netherlands. The full extent of their terrible fate only became known after the war: at least 102,000 were murdered, died of mistreatment or were worked to death in the Nazi camps. This tragedy has had a profound effect on Dutch society. Photographic archives and private collections were consulted in the Netherlands and abroad. Extensive background data was researched, which means that the moving pictures have an even greater force of expression. The result is an overwhelming collection of almost 400 photographs, accompanied by detailed captions.-The first book of photographs about the persecution and deportation of the Jews in the Netherlands during WWII The Persecution of the Jews in Photographs, the Netherlands 1940-1945 is the first book of its kind on the subject. Both the professional photographers commissioned by the occupying forces and amateurs took moving photographs.

NORTHERN PLAINS NATIVE AMERICANS: A MODERN WET PLATE PERSPECTIVE

Written by Balkowitsch, Shane
North Dakotan Shane Balkowitsch's first personal camera was not an Instamatic Kodak or a point-and- shoot Nikon, but rather a large format wet plate camera. As a self-taught “image-maker” and one of the fewer than 1,000 wet plate collodion artists practicing around the world, Balkowitsch has fully devoted himself to mastering the obsolete photographic technology since 2012. Approaching the historically embedded technique from a contemporary perspective, Balkowitsch's process transforms the limitations of the medium―its labor and time sensitive nature―into opportunities for creative explorations. Northern Plains Native Americans: A Modern Wet Plate Perspective presents a selection from Balkowitsch's photographic project which aims to capture 1000 wet plate portraits of Native Americans. His photographs highlight the dignity of his subjects, depicting them not as archetypes, but individuals of contemporary identities and historical legacies.As one of the fewer than 1,000 wet plate collodion artists practicing around the world, Balkowitsch provides an intimate view into the lives of Native American people in North Dakota and Northern Plains, simultaneously capturing their stories and preserving their legaciesThe wet collodion process dates back to the nineteenth century is valued for its ability to achieve high levels of detail and cl
