Choked sunset glow
of crashing time.
Roads. Roads.
Intersections of flight.

View from the Winter Glass (2014/2020) is a sequence of photographs from winter travels in southeastern Poland, northern Bukovina, and western Ukraine (specifically, the unmarked massacre site of the Jews of the small town of Mikolayiv, Ukraine), plus anonymous glass negatives in the collection of Grodzka Gate/Teatr NN in Lublin, and stills from a digitized 1932 amateur film in the YIVO archives, showing Jewish life in an unidentified place in Ukrainian Galicia.
