Over a six-year period, Anton Kusters researched and photographed a blue sky at the last known location of every former Nazi Germany SS concentration camp and killing center across Europe. These camps existed for 4432 days, from 1933 to 1945, in a highly organized system of imprisonment, forced labor, and murder. For "The Blue Skies Project" Belgian artist Anton Kusters (b. 1974) was nominated for the Prix Pictet 2019, and was a finalist for the 2020 Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize. "The Blue Skies Project" was exhibited at Fitzrovia Chapel, London in 2019.
