Product Details

Praise

“Last Folio is a deeply moving and personal photographic journey to the past with photographs taken in the most exquisite detail with outstanding composition.”


The Last Word Book Review
“An unusual, intensely moving book about the Holocaust, without the images one typically expects. Czech-born Canadian photographer Dojc returns to his ancestral home to photograph an abandoned synagogue and a Jewish school in eastern Slovakia. Inhabitants of these buildings were deported to concentration camps in 1942, leaving behind books, religious scrolls, and other items that have remained in place over the decades, evoking with great poignancy the ghosts of the vanished.”


Library Journal
“The narrative, though mostly visual, turns on a pair of coincidences revealed in Katya’s short piece, which adds poignancy and verve to this gorgeously disturbing book. Indeed, the volume is mostly about books—ruined books, scraps of books, sacred calligraphy, and the buildings that contained them.” —ArtsJournal
