This project has been a great yet intense personal experience; more than just a work of photography. For two years, I have lived with a deep and persistent sense of grief and sadness due to what I have seen, collected and read in the war diaries.
I have tried to convey the presence of the war through its absence, through the unforgettable and devastating remains of what was and what is, through profound silence.
I have tried to avoid unnecessary rhetoric as much as possible, photographing what I perceived to be suspended, still and crystallised over time. Views of indescribable beauty, yet with such striking contrasts which cannot be ignored. Now more than ever. -
