Photography "Pretty Pulley, Death Camp" by Hunter Madsen

"Pretty Pulley, Death Camp"


The photographer as infernal opportunist, in salmon-colored sheep's clothing.  Outside the death camp's old laundry building - I think it was - I came across a pulley of luminous hue and unknown historical function. Is its decorative inclusion here too  gratuitous? To like it, must you momentarily forget the rest? What salmon, one wonders, has actually been hooked by this lovely thing?
