Faces in the Void, Czech Survivors of the Holocaust

 

Inspired by the stories of Czech Holocaust survivors of the Second World War, Faces in the Void is a unique creative collaboration with poet Jane Liddell-King, in which words and photographs hauntingly complement each other.

 

The book and exhibition of this work contain the majority of the poems and photographs from the series and are based on meetings with a variety of survivors, including Alice Herz-Sommer and one rescuer, Sir Nicholas Winton. It also includes extensive background material.

 

Selections of poetry and photography from the book have been shown in many locations in England and also in the Czech Republic.
