    Susan May Auschwitz

    This haunting exhibition by Susan May Tell hosts 17 photographic images without words, titles, or even frames. These images stand as witnesses to the horrific scene that was Auschwitz. Tell explains that her imagery meditates on the idea that “like other sacred grounds that are decaying, Auschwitz today is disappearing and raises questions about whether places of this kind should be restored and the importance of memory and commemoration. Equally important to my artistic vision and is my commitment to Auschwitz as a meditation on decay and memory.”
