I often ask myself what lies behind those traces
 and scars that multiply over time and approach the front line. 
What is the story behind each destroyed car, each broken tree, 
or pierced billboards and road signs? 

The road is a witness to what has happened and is 
happening in our country. It speaks to me through its
 landscapes, its ruins. This road pains me, but despite 
the pain, the road is always a path that will lead somewhere – 
to oneself, to the truth, to the reality in which we live.

All the photographs were taken on 30-year-old film, damaged, unpredictable, and diverse.
I developed and scanned the images myself, which allowed me to connect deeply with
 my emotions, delve into them, and understand them.
