Floating Numbness

  • Photographer
    Katerina Kouzmitcheva

To be in silence, in peace, in solitude has been one of the common wishes of people. But year 2020 and ?ovid-19 have made their own adjustments to our sense of peace and need. Much of what's going on is unscripted, unknowable, and uncertain.The places - the small suburban areas, where we often run away to rest - have now become the silent heroes of our time. They are not yet abandoned, they are waiting for their owners. But for now none except for birds are coming. Emptiness, loneliness, tension along with expectation and hope - all merged into one question "What will happen next?"

Katerina Kouzmitcheva is a Belarusian photographer, currently based in Wroclaw, Poland, working at the intersection of genres, documentary and art photography. In her projects she explores the themes of identity, feminism, family relations, themes of particular places, human interaction and personal relations to them.
