­­Jason Francisco – Alive and Destroyed

Review by Steve Harp • Where to begin with Jason Francisco’s Alive and Destroyed?  Where does one begin considering, weighing, wrestling with a volume as unsettling and provocative as Francisco’s images of “small and forgotten” sites of the Holocaust across Eastern Europe, made between 2010 – 2019?  One place to begin might be with the...

When individuals and places are... Continue Reading →
