Paolo Pellegrin: As I was Dying

Paolo Pellegrin: As I was Dying

“When I do my work and I’m exposed to the suffering of others –their loss or, at times, their death – I feel I am surviving as a witness; my role and responsibility is to create a record for our collective memory. Part of this, I believe, has to do with notions of accountability. Perhaps it is only in their…
