AUSCHWITZ

In 1996, while working for S.L. Benfica, we went to Poland, to play with R. Chorzow wich is about 20 miles away from Oswiecim (Auschwitz).
We (all the reporters) went there on a very short trip. I almost had no time to actually watch what I was looking at. I just tried to get the largest amount of pictures that was possible on a 2 hours visit.
In photographic means, these are far from being the best quality images I´ve ever done.
Hiding behind the camera, all that I was seeing had no impact on me, while I was there.
For the years that came, each time I manipulate the images, I get physically sick. It´s very painful to remember each corner of the camp, and as a paradox, I do well remember them all. To visit this inhuman place is a lifetime experience.
And should be a lesson to ALL our contemporary fellows who drive lunatics into power...
