Photographer SONDRA PERON- Auschwitz, Dachau, Mauthausen: The Concentration Camp Series

Does a landscape have memory? Can we, after sixty-plus years, still see a place of great human suffering? How does a photographer capture an image of our collective historical memory of the Holocaust?

Photographer Sondra Peron, in her exhibition, Auschwitz, Dachau, Mauthausen: The Concentration Camp Series, on view at the Vermont Center for Photography beginning November 6, explores these questions in an attempt to provide some answers.

This body of photographic work began in the spring of 2004. Using
vintage Kodak Hawkeye Brownie cameras dating from the late 1940s, photographer Peron traveled to a small town on the north bank of the Danube River called Mauthausen in August of 2004. The following year, photographs taken at Auschwitz and Dachau revealed more atrocity landscapes-- from pine forests to gas chambers at these concentration camps used by the Nazis during WW II.

This show will open on Friday, November 6, 2009, with a reception during Gallery Walk, 5:30-8:30 PM.
