Between Frames is a series of photo-postcards documenting sites of recent political violence. The photographs taken on a trip to Moscow in 2011 depict the locations of attacks in Moscow, the evidence of continuing conflict in the Caucasus. The title relates to the ever futile attempt to take a photograph of a devastating event that disrupted the flow of urban life. The subject of the photograph never appears in it. It is perpetually outside of the frame. The urban context I place myself in starts speaking the back of each postcard is detailed with diary-like entries relating my personal interactions in each location, the oppositional ideologies involved in the attacks and controversies over the state's involvement. A perverse souvenir, the postcard acts as a commodification device for sites of tragedies caused by political statements of last resort.
