To commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) in Bristol is opening Generations: Portraits of Holocaust Survivorsa partnership project featuring 50 photos of different survivors from around the world.
“The exhibit was scheduled to open in 2020 with 75 portraits to mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz,” RPS project curator Tracy Marshall-Grant said via email. When the UK was placed under its first national lockdown like so many other countries in March 2020, the exhibit was updated and postponed to this year.
Opening Thursday, the show features images taken by 13 different photographers, including images taken by Kate Middleton aka Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge. RPS worked with partners, including Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, to match survivors and their families with photographers. Each photographer was encouraged to treat the project as if it were their own, resulting in photographs of varying styles.
