Botanski

Christian Boltanski (born September 6, 1944) is a French photographer and installation artist. His art is engaged in the problems of death, memory and loss; he often seeks to memorialize the anonymous and those who have disappeared.

“I began to work as an artist when I began to be an adult, when I understood that my childhood was finished, and was dead. I think we all have somebody who is dead inside of us. A dead child. I remember the Little Christian that is dead inside me.”

—Christian Boltanski
