A trip through Moldova, Transnistria and Ukraine

There are places where time flows in a different way, giving new and unexpressed meanings to the reality they are made of. The inexorable sequence of minutes here shrinks from the superficiality of any deadline, without putting any trust in the sleazy and winking flashing of a neon sign. Here the light has no precise schedule reflecting the colours, instead it frames the silence of these spaces. There are places where the substance of events take on different forms, where one of the best known dates becomes just the day when a wall fell down, but nothing changed. Travelling through these places gives new meanings to our everyday words. Travelling through Transnistria means being prepared to bring into question the places inside ourselves where senses become form. Text Andrea Santoro and photo Giacomo Cosua
