Stark and brazen in the face of history, these faces shine out and remind the world of its darkest moment but also its brightest future.
"Survivor" is a photo series that tells the story of over 200 people who survived an important and painful episode in history.
Every person featured in the series is a survivor of the Holocaust. Each portrait is accompanied by a caption, written in their own handwriting. The messages range from feelings of unquenched anger, to peaceful resolution, to hope for the future.
Photographer Harry Borden, a seasoned celebrity photographer, started the project 10 years ago and spent five years traveling the globe to meet and photograph his subjects. He photographed the survivors in their own homes using natural light to create a sense of intimacy.
