“The Wind Rises shines light on the indelible problematics of segregating politics from aesthetics – which is the prime modus operandi of modern and contemporary art which, impelled to construct something of ‘beauty’, consequently feels it is ‘informed’ and ‘compelled to inform’ us about the world into which those constructs of beauty are directed.”
What do my photos do?
These two photos are from the Jewish cemetery in Morocco. We were told, that the graves were dug very deep in the time of the plague where nearly the whole population was wiped out. This cemetery reminded me of the homage to those who died in the holocaust, in Berlin. This little tended graves, with weeds and the usual subtle colours of Morocco formed a fitting tribute to the dead.
