Quiet Auschwitz

Six months ago, I visited the Auschwitz concentration camp to photograph the site. But ever since my visit, I've been holding off on publishing the photos, not really sure if they could show how powerful a place this is. I've decided to go ahead and publish them here.

The images below include the transportation cars, barracks, isolation cells, communal latrine, the belongings of prisoners, the firing wall, and the gas chamber. I photographed the two main areas of the camp: Auschwitz I, the first holding place, and Auschwitz II, the extermination camp.

I've never visited a place so quiet.
