Inhaltsangabe: This listing is for a series of three books. Living Witnesses, Triumph Over Tragedy is a series of three photography books, documenting Survivors of the Holocaust. "My holocaust project began as a means to heal after the tragic and sudden death of my 28-year-old daughter, Miya. The project developed into a life s mission for me. I owe my sanity to the camaraderie and deep connections that I made with the holocaust survivors that I photographed. Why survivors? I needed to relate to people who had experienced the magnitude of loss I felt. I needed to hear from people that, years later, their loss is not lost. I needed to have a purpose to get up everyday and do something worthwhile. Documenting portraits of survivors to allow the world to remember years after their generation is gone- is my contribution. My first book, Living Witnesses, Faces of the Holocaust, had a profound impact on my community. I realized that I had discovered something that I could do to make a difference. I decided to continue my quest and am embarking on an even more expansive project to include survivors in Europe, Canada, and the US. I funded the first book of Detroit area survivors and all the profits from the book are earmarked for those survivors in need. I am now affiliated with Kadima, a non-profit Jewish organization that assists adults who are emotionally and mentally challenged. They provide homes, activities, and support to those people who would otherwise struggle.
Über den Autor: Monni Must began focusing on capturing the essence of people at a very young age. Her interest in photography inspired her to obtain a Bachelor s Degree from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. After graduating, Monni got married and had her first daughter, Miya. Monni then went on to give birth to three other daughters. She immersed herself into motherhood and for a while... put photography on hold. In 2007, Miya, Monni s first daughter, died, tragically and suddenly. Moni dove headfirst into her work as a means to deal with her grief. She began the Holocaust book project. After three years of intense work, travel, and healing, the books are complete. Monni funded the first book on her own and the profits from sales go to assist survivors in need. Monni also photographs infants in the neo natal department at Beaumont Hospital in order for parents to have photographs in remembrance of their babies. In her own words: My passion has expanded into making life more meaningful, fulfilling a void in my life after the death of my daughter. It has allowed me to channel my grief into something more positive.
