by Florian Bachmeier

Florian Bachmeier's color photographs, which were taken in the Ukraine over the past eight years, succeed in making past and present historical processes in Ukraine visible and to describe their psychological and social effects on people and landscapes.

He travels intensively all over the country, taking photos in the cities, in the villages and at the front. In the seventh year, an internal political conflict has turned into a merciless proxy war that has cost thousands of lives and spread all over the country in all its effects.

IN LIMBO, describes an apparent state of freezing and, at the same time, permanent uncertainty. The portraits tell of biographies in which the conflict is inscribed visible and invisible. In addition to the heroes' monuments and the ruins of the last war, the front runs through the landscape. In the end, the only choice left for the people is either to settle in this state or to leave the country, their homeland.
