Add to selectionDownload PDF
 

On August 11 and 12, a show of force by neo-nazis and white supremacist groups in Charlottesville, Virginia, to oppose the removal of the statue of  General Robert E. Lee, leads to violent clashes and leave several deaths and many wounded. On August 23, the Town Hall decides to cover the statue with black as a sign of mourning. On August 28, we leave for Virginia to shoot the shrouded statue as departure point for a reflection about the historical and political implication of the raging debate on the fate of the Confederate statues in the USA.
