Beasts of the Apocalypse
Donbas. Zaitsevo 2022.
Apocalypse is the end of the world. That is how you can call the place where the village of Zaitsevo is located. The front line runs right through the village; for years it has not disappeared from combat reports. A local resident left the front-line territory after he created tire heroes in his yard. He seemed to have left a message filled with monsters, catastrophes and prophecy.
«Apocalypse» — the most mysterious, dark, confusing part of the «New Testament». In the course of almost two thousand years of the history of the interpretation of the Apocalypse, various interpretations of this image have been proposed. The Donbass has its own language of the apocalypse,
born from the symbols of war to describe the indescribable.
The photographs were taken in the Donbas ahead of Russia invasion of Ukraine.
