Grief, Kerch, Crimea
Spring 1942
Silver gelatin print

.
“War, is, above all, grief. I photographed non-stop for years and I know that in all that time I produced only five or six real photographs. War is not for photography. If, heaven forbid, I had to photograph war again, I would do it quite differently. I agonise now at the thought of all the things that I did not photograph.”

Dmitri Baltermants quoted in ”The Russian War, 1941-1945″ (J. Cape, London, 1978)
