Who Speaks. Who is Silent.


Who speaks.

Who is silent.

Who aims the camera.

Who looks away.

Who records history.

Who is recorded.

Who are the perpetrators.  Who are

the victims.

Who frames the photograph. Who

is framed.

Who controls.

Who pleads.

Who murders.

Who is killed.

Who denies.

Who remembers.

Who has the last word.

Whose photographs occupy the walls of our museums.



the photographs

we will never see.
