Hell in the Sand

The culmination of a month long project to mark the 75th Anniversary of the Retirada of the Republicans from Spain in February 1939. Inspired by Robert Capa's photographs of Argeles sur Mer, the French internment camp where Sonia Boué's father was held captive. Boué created this series of ironic postcards. Layers of research and intersecting stories inform each postcard in an ongoing narrative response to the rupture of war and displacement.
