“In these photos, you see old people. Some have their eyes closed. Usually, we close our eyes when we are trying really hard to remember something. Or we close our eyes when we sleep. And when we die. I had all three possibilities in mind when I started to shoot these photos. Meeting these people in the studio meant meeting them for the first time. Maybe it was easier to work with them not knowing them personally, not knowing anything about them. The only contact point was the fact that they had all been prisoners in the concentration camps.”
