The theme of war - is a vast niche in the work of photographers. War past. Wars current. Fantasia on possible future. Themes of love and death - the hottest in literature and drama, and the visual arts.
Dutchman Jo Hedwig Teeuwi introduced the theme of war under the rather curious foreshortening. Maybe because of the education and occupation he was a historian. Inscribed images of the Second World War - soldiers and civilians - in the appropriate places of modern European cities, he created a kind of virtual tour of the past. This is a reminder and a warning in one bottle. Ghosts of War in the streets of peaceful cities. France, Italy, the Netherlands. Auschwitz in Poland.
Old Europe is tired of wars.
