Hardcover, design by Kasia Kubicka, text by Magdalena Rigamonti, edition of 500 copies.

I travel to places that do not exist. I meet people without a future, living in the past. I visited many places in western Ukraine, in Volhynia. Today, there are only empty space of the former Polish villages and towns. Almost all they disappeared in the year 1943. They can be found on old maps, trying to track them down with GPS. In early spring, when snow melts it can be seen, where there were houses. Material is only emptiness and the echo of the past. Boundless landscapes, sincere fields and only here and there someone placed a cross. Historians document and collect testimony about Volhynia Massacre, they created a historical development, which rely almost exclusively on human memory, because the material certificates basically does not exist. I'm looking for what does not exist, and I'm trying to tell the story about Volhynia, the land contaminated by death.
