"Memory Traces is the title of my recent publication, in which I relate to notions about landscape, culture, history and memory. Memory Traces is an unconventional photo-book, composed to be an experience, in which a selection of landscape photographs are combined with a multi-layered range of texts which include excerpts from travelogues, ?written photographs? and a short story situated in the art-world which, among other things, deals with 'The Artification of Photography' and ?The End of Silver-based Photography?. In a second separate booklet a Chernobyl family album of found negatives has been reproduced. " Cary Markerink -

The large format photographs were made in Sarajevo; Hiroshima and Nagasaki; Berlin, Bitterfeld-Wolfen and Ronneburg; Bikini Island and Nam Island; Chernobyl; Khe San and My Lai
