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.

it's beyond the visible
la force de comprendre
comme la vérité d'un matin
like an unexpected choice
do you see the same?
le tour de soi-même
la liberté de demain
respirer l'inconnu
tu vois ce que tu veux voir
and the sun shines trough the night
l'hiver au soleil
respirer l'inconnue (inhale the unknown)
