Karl Koenig has been photographing Holocaust concentration camps for more than ten years. These photographs of the architecture and landscape of suffering, he believes, ""may have some impact on people who are on the path to indifference."" Throughout the series, Koenig explores narrative and visual dissonances in order to highlight the inexplicability of the Holocaust itself. Inventor of the polychromatic gumoil process, a labour-intensive and highly manipulated method, Koenig creates mono types, each existing as an unique object.
