espoir

is the hopeful title of Eva-Maria Raab’s series that she started during the Lockdown in
March 2020. She combines different subjects, whether from her neighborhood or from
past journeys with short poetic thoughts. The key image of this series is the picture entitled
“it’s beyond the visible”. Raab is based in a village just a stone’s throw from the Czech
Republic. In March the border was closed and even blocked with 3 huge blocks. With her
visual poetry Raab tries to capture our perception of these uncertain times – and make the
unseen visible.
