BREAKING HEARTS :-(
Robert Capa - Chartres, France, August 18th, 1944: Just after the liberation of the town, this French woman who had had a baby with a German soldier has her head shaved as punishment. During the middle ages, this mark of shame, denuding a woman of what was supposed to be her most seductive feature, was commonly a punishment for adultery. Shaving women's heads as a mark of retribution and humiliation was reintroduced in the 20th century and was widespread post WW2.
An undertaker in the Warsaw ghetto's Jewish cemetery on Okopowa Street lifts the body of a woman for Heinrich Joest to show him how little it weighs. Joest's caption reads: "The dead were not heavy, as one corpse-bearer showed me - although I had not asked him to - in front of the buildings of the Jewish cemetery."
Documentary photography is something I have always wanted to get into. I do not go on enough trips to really get great shots that really bring emotion to the viewer. Azli Jamil does an amazing job of this exact thing. Just by looking at these shots, you almost feel what the subjects in the image are feeling.
