Memory traces is an unconventional photo-book which relates to notions about landscape, culture, history and memory.
The publication consists of a large format main photo-book and two smaller booklets in a printed box and weighs about 3,5 kilo. A selection of large-format landscape photographs are combined with a multi-layered range of texts which include travelogues, written photographs and a short story. One of the booklets is made of a series of family photographs found in an abandoned and looted house near to the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant.
The photographs were made between 1997 and 2008 in Sarajevo, Hiroshima & Nagasaki, Berlin, Bitterfeld-Wolfen, Ronneburg, Bikini Atoll, My Lai & Khe San and Chernobyl.
