Nobody knew at that time how long this conflict<br /> would last, and how difficult and painful the consequences of this conflict would be.<br /> People of Donbass truly hoped the war would end quickly, and peace would come back to<br /> their long-suffering land. Three years went by. The active phase of the conflict is over, but<br /> there is no peace yet. With this war, hearts of people were filled with uncertainty, despair,<br /> and complete luck of hope. Along the contact line of the fighting sides, so called "Gray<br /> Zone" has been created. This is a conditional name for the territories without a specific<br /> status, with no official government or law enforcement. There are no operational hospitals<br /> or schools there, and there is no work. People's lives are in constant danger because of the<br /> fighting. This protracted long lasting conflict and the foggy future turned the entire<br /> Donbass region into the territory of the Gray Zone. Zones without any clear boundaries<br /> in space and time. The Gray Zone is not only a territory, a piece of land, it is a sensation of<br /> a person completely immersed in the darkness of the unknown in the face of war. This is<br /> the vital state of existential loneliness of a person who has lost all the hope…</p></div> <ul class="action-links action-links-field-collection-add"><li></li></ul> <div class="field field--name-field-session-id field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Session ID</div> <div class="field__item">BT77</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-author field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Author</div> <div class="field__item"> <article role="article" class="node node--type-author node--view-mode-large-compact-teaser"> <h2> <a href="/node/21698" rel="bookmark"><span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Valery Melnikov</span> </a> </h2> <div class="node__content"> <div class="field field--name-field-reference-uuid field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Reference UUID</div> <div class="field__item">36562445-ee60-4569-b7a9-5597529fc2e8</div> </div> </div> </article> </div> </div> Tue, 21 May 2019 19:24:37 +0000 photographie 28595 at https://photographie.com 1925 https://photographie.com/node/27819 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">1925</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><a title="View user profile." href="/user/2" class="username">photographie</a></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Sun, 05/19/2019 - 21:22</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>On pourrait se perdre au milieu de ce calme. Une prairie déserte, un étang, une forêt. Le vent qui fait danser les herbes. Les gens demeurent invisibles, à première vue, mais il y a déjà quelques maisons. Il y a quelques présences, des mains qui nous indiquent une direction, que le voyage peut être doux. Il y a quelques animaux qui font ce qu'ils peuvent pour maintenir leur présence et la manifester à ce monde là. Voici un monde endormi en noir et blanc. Il y a des arbres, puissants centenaires, qui nous incitent à nous laisser porter et qui nous disent qu’il est possible de vivre ici, d’y rester. Essayer d’apercevoir ces visages qui ne se montrent pas car tout entier tournés vers un ailleurs. Des corps qui se courbent, comme s'ils voulaient disparaître dans la terre.</p> <p>Ce sont des photographies de mes grands-parents. Elles ont été prises dans le Limousin, dans le nord de la Haute-Vienne. Là où le relief et les lignes courbes des collines forment un paysage discret, doux et parfois sauvage. C’est sur ces terres traversées par de paisibles rivières et ponctuées d’étangs, de landes et de tourbières que va se refermer le dernier chapitre d’une longue vie commune.</p> <p>Entre le souvenir et le temps qui passe on construit un puzzle. Il faut délimiter nous-mêmes les frontières entre le passé et le présent. S’accommoder du présent. Apprendre à vivre avec. S’y sentir bien. Devenir soi-même. Partir puis revenir, encore et toujours.</p></div> <ul class="action-links action-links-field-collection-add"><li></li></ul> <div class="field field--name-field-submission-id field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Submission ID</div> <div class="field__item">134</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-session-id field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Session ID</div> <div class="field__item">BT78</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-contact-id field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Contact ID</div> <div class="field__item">53009</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-userid field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">UserID</div> <div class="field__item">2907</div> </div> Sun, 19 May 2019 19:22:29 +0000 photographie 27819 at https://photographie.com Like the rain falling from the sky https://photographie.com/node/27818 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Like the rain falling from the sky</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><a title="View user profile." href="/user/2" class="username">photographie</a></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Sun, 05/19/2019 - 21:22</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>War still flows today, like a river, in our imagination. Death and devastation are the mosaic of those news that keep following one another in the newspapers, on the web, on television, on the radio. Death and war are the archetypes par excellence of current events. The regime of this 21st century is precisely that kind of actuality understood just as present tense. Only present tense, only now, just for a while. Like a story on Instagram. War becomes then an abstract, liquid fact that one tends to forget (at least if one is not a historian or memory-making professional). One war replaces the other, in our collective memory. The facts are linked, they become too many or too painful and remain just a blurred idea, perhaps linked to an image of a dying man, of a woman screaming in the middle of a rubble, of a drowned child.<br /> These flashes, these fragmented emotions, tell us about our relationship to war. An unresolved relationship. A relationship based on brevity, fugacity, erasure. -<br /> The last modern but not contemporary war is Vietnam. Before the internet, after the Nazis. It is the last conflict that left a mark in the public opinion and that is still recognized today. After Vietnam, wars have become more abstracts, more routinised, more anchored to specific battles. Despite this, the interest on the progress of the American conflict in Vietnam has become scarce because of its gradual turning away from the title of this new century: the present time.<br /> What remains of a conflict then?<br /> The dioxin remains in the land, a broken territory, hundreds of weapons in museums, unexploded devices in cultivated fields, bomb holes – all of this remains. Above all, the feeling of what the conflict was, remains. The witnesses remain, the memory of those born after 1975 remains. War is fear. The eyes of a woman who used to “jump on corpses” to save herself, remain.<br /> It was like the rain falling from the sky.<br /> This is a sentence uttered by an old farmer from Can Gio, an almost poetic phrase. Like the rain. Before realizing what was happening, this country man took this ecocide for the most natural event in the world. We cannot possibly imagine what it means to wake up one morning and see that your world was completely destroyed by a substance similar to water, thrown by some military aircraft. We can still find the words, signs and faces of the war, though, because they are frozen there.<br /> Photography can be art and can document. It has the ability to tell and remember. To report and abstract. Putting together photographs to construct a narrative is something very similar to the elaboration of memory. This is the reason why my work starts from an observation: we have a desperate need to rework the memory of the war, because we have to understand it. --- Here is Vietnam, today.<br /> Photographs, documents, graphic elaborations, ideas and testimonies. A jigsaw puzzle, of which sometimes I still find it hard to decipher the meaning but which on other occasions seems to me to make sense. A mosaic that feeds on literature and cinema. Of memories and confessions. Of secret documents and ancient myths. The constellation of narratives about Vietnam is boundless. A jigsaw puzzle that I did not want to frame but a moment before hanging it, I decided to feed our imagination with.</p> <p>NICOLA BERTASI</p> </div> <ul class="action-links action-links-field-collection-add"><li></li></ul> <div class="field field--name-field-submission-id field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Submission ID</div> <div class="field__item">130</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-session-id field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Session ID</div> <div class="field__item">BT77</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-contact-id field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Contact ID</div> <div class="field__item">98074</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-userid field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">UserID</div> <div class="field__item">349</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-author field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Author</div> <div class="field__item"> <article role="article" class="node node--type-author node--view-mode-large-compact-teaser"> <h2> <a href="/node/28375" rel="bookmark"><span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Nicola Bertasi</span> </a> </h2> <div class="node__content"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>NICOLA BERTASI</p> <p>Born in Milan, Italy 13th January 1983.
