David Seymour. Spain. Island of Minorca. Children take refuge in underground shelters to escape the bombings. 1938.

Chim's children of post-war Europe series is one of the best I've come across: frank, insightful, compounding tragedies without ever pandering. The incidents and individuals themselves are deeply affecting, but his unsentimental tenderness casts them in the best possible light, particularly in the images of children playing among ruins.

Or building new structures from the rubble. There is a resilience and an optimism in these photos, no matter how dire they may seem.

David Seymour. Italy. Rome. Blind boy who lost his arms during the war has learnt to read with his lips. 1948.

.

For all the tragic perseverance in this photograph, I'm struck most of all by its poetry. To absorb a book through your lips, as though the words themselves are sustenance. The words take on a texture, perhaps a flavor. One must kiss the words to read them, which makes reading a sensual act, and also an act of supplication.

Haha, I hadn't noticed that but almost definitely. In the article I posted, Willoughby is quoted as saying, "Big Jay literally was a Pied Piper. I was told that at another concert in San Diego, he swept the entire audience out of the theater and took them for a tour around the block. Much to the dismay of the local police, who weren't too sure what might happen at this Olympic gig either. You could see them in the crowd, probably looking for drugs. But with Big Jay in orbit on stage, the crowd was already on a high."

Patrick Zachmann. France. Paca region. Alpes-de-Haute Provence. Town of Chateau Arnoux. June 1984.

Patrick Zachmann wrote:All my work has been around themes of identity, memory, the criminal underworld and immigration. I’m from a Jewish migrant family, but my parents didn’t want to talk about their past, their country of origin or their Jewish identity because it was too much for them, too painful. When my mother arrived in France from Algeria, she destroyed all the photographs she had of her family. Maybe this is the real reason I became a photographer – because at home there weren’t any pictures at all. There was no family album, nothing from the past. I didn’t even know that my grandparents on my father’s side were sent to Auschwitz. Being a photographer was a way of looking for the missing images of my own story and building them into a new album, like the one I never had.
