Łukasz Baksik's Matzevot for Everyday Use – Image Gallery
Łukasz Baksik's album of photographs traces ways in which tombstones from Jewish cementeries in Poland had been recycled and re-used during and after WW2. They formed part of buildings, roads, and even children's sandboxes. Baksik started his project of photographing the forlorn matzevot around 2002 after having photographed Jewish cementeries all around Poland and realizing that many tombsones had disappeared. At the time it didn't occur to him to ask where they had vanished to.
