Photographer's Note

In the northern - east of Poland by whole centuries lived abreast people of different cultures, nationality and religions - Poles, Jews, Muslims, Lithuanians, Belorussians, Russians, believers of Orthodox church... Now this world already does not exist... This photo I made in village Krynki, 4 kilometres from belorussian border. Before the II World War the Jews represented 95% inhabitants of village, which had status of city. Today sole that stay after them that are several broken gravestones (macew) and three destroyed synagogues.
I long time searched these tombstones because cemetery is vandalized and nobody takes care of him...

To make this photo I used Nikon D70, Tamron 28-80 and circular polarizer.

Regards!!!
