The photographs were taken in 2008 in Hallein, Austria and in Obersalzberg, Germany, Hitler’s private domain. Hitler’s former residence, das Kehlsteinhaus (the Eagle’s Nest), was built on a mountain peak which offers an unobstructed view of several towns, including Hallein.  With this geographical premise in mind, I set out to imagine the rhythm of an ordinary life, unfolding in the Austrian town, in the immediate proximity of Evil. The unyielding  search for the past in the present led me to problematize the notion of gaze, of looking and being looked at. At the same time, in its attempt to explore the memory of the chosen places, my project tested the limits of the documentary approach. Thus, the photographic accidents resulting from the developing process were deliberately exploited.
