Mayn rue platz


מײַן רוע־פּלאַץ


The photographs are based on the poem "Mayn rue-plats" written by Morris Rosenfeld in memory of those killed during the fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York in 1911.

I decided to make a personal interpretation of the poem, which focuses on showing the delicacy of heavy and loud machines by decorating them with white roses, which are a symbol of lightness and innocence. It should be remembered that in everything that surrounds us there is a lot of human work and efforts which we underestimate.
I would like to point out that the statement mayn rue-plats in Yiddish is ambiguous. It can mean a place of peace, a place of rest or eternal rest.
