Distance Experimental Photography by Serhiy Horobets
Even standing still meters close to a tombstone, one is in steady movement; slowly and constantly moving away. The distance is not constant.
Established during a cholera outbreak in 1831 the new Jewish cemetery in Brody (Lviv region, Ukraine) was intentionally situated far there from the city; in 1941 – 1943 thousands of Holocaust victims were buried here in mass graves.
There is a distance between those who the tombstones represent too, a constant one perhaps. This work is an attempt to probe into the nature of our perception of all these distances.
