In ‘The Dead Still Cry Out’ Helen Lewis writes about her father’s extraordinary experience photographing the liberation of Bergen Belsen. The child of Jewish refugees, Mike Lewis’ images shocked him and the world. Helen explores the issues around the use of photographs as source documents and considers the distinction between looking and seeing when it comes to images of atrocity. In our hyper image obsessed age and society, Lewis considers the ethics and aesthetics of viewing images of horror.
