In the photographer's words: "This photo was taken at the Jewish Museum in Berlin, Germany in the “Shalechet” or “Fallen Leaves” installation. The numerous faces made of metal represent the Jewish victims of the Holocaust, and victims of violence and war worldwide. This installation was especially moving to me because of Berlin's role in WWII and it's impact on the Holocaust. Seeing this small representation of victims and their emotions helped put into perspective for me what occurred during that trying time."
