John Sandell photography

Confined. This image was taken in Auschwitz in September 2005. For me it records the dark, oppressive, locked-in feel of the place with the simplest design I could manage, and it's the only image so far out of the 150 or so that I took that day that I've processed or posted here. The sun was shining and the sky was blue and there was a complete unreality about the site, bearing in mind the contemporary black & white images that we've all seen so many times. Posted here on 27 January 2015, the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.

Technical: NIKON D100, f=105.0 mm, ISO400, 1/160 sec @ f5.6
