The project was initiated through my participation in Normandy, France June 6 2004 at the 60-year commemoration of the D-Day.
I came as close to President George W. Bush as it was possible when he held his speech at the American Military cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer. I was stopped at coming closer by the riding French police, but we could hear the voice of Bush and some fragments of his message. This was as close as I made it this day.
The next day I entered the cemetery and worked the whole day taking photos of the thousands of white marble headstones and the ambience resting over the place. The photos taken that day on the cemetery at “Collevilel-sur-Mer” will show you the dimensions the civil losses can have, and the meaningless glory it is to die in a war.
