Trying To Reach


Trying To Reach
I tried to show a prisoner from the Holocaust reaching up into the sky to try and “have a breath of fresh air.” The barbed wire is restricting the prisoner and the fire is slowly burning the insides. The prisoner has cuts and bruises from all the hard work they are forced to do. The cuts and bruises showed the permanent scars left from this traumatic event in time.
