Susan May Tell, an award-winning photojournalist for the New York Post, created “Requiem,” this week’s book of the week. Susan traveled to the Auschwitz concentration camp in 1998 and has subsequently created a book containing a collection of her haunting imagery alongside the poetic work of Stanley Kunitz. It is breathtaking to say the least.
In an interview for the Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale where Susan’s images were on exhibition, she states: “Equally important to my artistic vision is my commitment to Auschwitz as a meditation on decay and memory. Like other sacred grounds that have been neglected and are decaying, Auschwitz today is disappearing.” These images undoubtedly preserve the memory of what once was and what stands today.
