The image ends up looking surreal - which in fact suits the place!

Why a soldier's uniform in a concentration camp? The man would have been in a POW-camp normally. Or is it an art installation that's not part of a documentary display?

In my mind I'm comparing this with the uniforms display in the Historiale de Peronne, where all the uniforms are displayed lying in holes in the floor. I think the Bergen Belsen display is more subtle.

the liberation, perhaps?

I looked it up, and it was liberated by the English indeed; but there was also a POW-camp. He looks so un-martial to me with his big bag of belongings, perhaps the display is referring to a POW.

Fantastic. To have seen and then realized so well the photographic potential of this scene takes an impeccable eye.

This is probably one of the saddest pictures I've ever seen... The pain and the noise are washed away by time and all that remains is the emptiness. This is a stunning work of art.

Well, this is so sad but it was made in such a sad place and the display itself knows that it is in a sad place and that it is all now about sadness - - the only thing left about those places.

This is a great photo, the title is very interesting because of the metaphoric nature that it has. It begs the question... What now? the soldier has spent his life in that style, going from one battle to another and now that its all over what's left for him to do. the image talks about the struggles that they go through when they try to fit back into the public as well.
the blank space behind him is fitting because of the way ot describes the nature of what they have become, and what they have to. All those experiences have to be cleared away leaving a clear space behind for the new, and those old experiences never go away. Thats what the glass case with the uniform represents. Its all sealed off, never to be touched only to be looked at from the outside...

My friend Steph and I looked at this and that's what we saw, she was kinda reluctant but enjoyed the photo nonetheless.
thanks for posting.
