Time In Between
Photographer Frank Herfort’s photo series entitled Time In Between – Fairy Tale Of Russia is underscored by the opening sentence of his artistic statement “The whole world is frozen in a condition of waiting. The people in these photos seem to be totally absorbed in a deep, paralysing, enchanted slumber.
The series was photographed in Moscow, Saint Petersburg and other places in Russia. Herfort discusses the contrast with Western Europe: “In Western Europe everything is so neatly defined, so specific. A waiting room is a waiting room, an office is an office. In Russia, in contrast, rooms are open to interpretation, many-layered and not so prettified. And I also noticed that there seem to be many more people just sitting around in them.”
