This is the second in a series of posts designed to share images I am passionate about but would not otherwise make it into my commercial portfolio. Images from travels and adventures, images with a story, and abstract images I have fallen in love with for their simplicity or raw visual impact.

This photo was taken at Sachenhausen Concentration Camp north of Berlin in Oranienburg Germany during the summer of 2010. Sachenhausen was a Nazi concentration camp that operated primarily as a work camp for political prisoners from 1936 to May 1945. I was compelled to take this photo because of the way the foliage has begun to reclaim the facilities. I see as a metaphor for the ongoing healing process in post WWII Germany.
