“Meyer’s meticulous stitching pierces the photograph as it heals and conceals the historic fabric to which it alludes, providing a poignant contrast to the unyielding brutality of the Wall itself and reminding us of both photography’s and history’s considerable artifice. What we see in the photographs, then, is what we forget, and it’s only in our erratic remembering that we behold the light of the untouchable past.”
