Hide & seek

By Ori Gersht

Abstract

The photographs in the series Hide and Seek depict hidden swamps and marshes located in the remnants, on the borders of Poland and Belarus, of the vast primeval forests that once covered most of Europe. Gersht was seeking locations that, at times of political conflict, were used as places of refuge.\ud \ud Hide and Seek attempts to explore the dialectic between metaphysical and real places. Photography can only depict the reality that is physically present in front of the lens, and Gersht was interested in finding places to photograph that do not, or did not, exist on any map and that therefore may be referred to as ‘non-places’ or voids
