Is It Safe?: Photos by Aliza Augustine

Photos narratives consisting of Holocaust photos of her family and constructed sets as a reenactment of the tales of war as told by her grandfather.
Is It Safe, an ongoing project, addresses my experience; that of a child and grandchild of survivors who first fled from Poland to France due to Anti-Semitism and subsequently fled France for the United States. Portraying the history of the family through found photographs and miniature narratives; Is It Safe addresses the lives of the survivors and documents my experience as the daughter/granddaughter of survivors through the use of visual narrative. 
Using photographs of family who survived or were murdered during the Holocaust, I portray political and sociological issues confronting my family and the world. These photographs are the backdrop to my life and my work.
