Mark Power. Poland. Warsaw.

.

An interview with Power

Some personal thoughts on Power:
He has a very distinctive style, one primarily concerned with space and the texture, color, and light at work within that space. Few people appear in his photographs; he seems to prefer these spaces as if they're abandoned or newly born, undisturbed by occupants. They begin to feel like the remnants of some vanished civilization, or perhaps a civilization without people where structures assemble themselves by some mysterious means. His projects documenting large scale engineering efforts -- Superstructure (The Millenium Dome) and The Airbus A380 -- emphasize this alien sense of space and bring to mind science fiction films like 2001: A Space Odyssey. On the rare occasion that people do appear, they are either blurred by his exposures or they appear en masse, such that they become a part of the architecture.

Margaret Bourke-White. The dead at Buchenwald. From Liberation of KZ Buchenwald a.o., Germany. April 1945.

.

This photograph struck me for two reasons: the sharp foregrounding of the dead while the living parade in the background, and the senseless intermingling of feet and heads, as though the bodies were piled without any consideration, like broken dolls in a toy box. Holocaust imagery can be hard to fully process, but that detail gave this particular image a real immediacy for me.
