Aftermath - WWII Survivors Project


I am Silvia and I am a MA Photography student in London.

Aftermath is the project I am realizing for my degree. It is about war and people who experienced it. In winter time, when I was a child, there were many power cuts in the area where I lived. My grandmothers used to tell me their stories as young women and WWII was the background of those stories. It was dark, and those words by the candlelight built a world inside of me that still exists. Most of all, they gave a power I discovered only as a woman, the power of memory. Therefore, the project is about those stories that should be not forgotten. 

I am planning to realize interviews of WWII survivors in the UK, Italy, Germany and Japan.

I will develop a short documentary that will contain the interviews and pictures inspired by the stories I will record.

So far I realized few interviews, an installation video inspired by them and started the pre-production of some of the pictures. The project is self-funded. The funding will help to pay the costs of travel and of the interpreters.


What You Get

I will be happy to give for your generous donations photo postcards,  posters,  photo prints, and mentions for all in the credits.


Thank you so much for taking the time to read about my project.

Silvia
