A Look from Heaven – People’s Memory

A Look from Heaven – People’s Memory

Commissioner for Human Rights in Sverdlovsk Region Tatiana Merzlyakova has supported a public project ‘A Look from Heaven — People’s Memory’.

The project has been organised by photographer and poet Vadim Osipov and journalist Natalia Paegle. To make photos of monuments to those who had died during the Great Patriotic War, they travelled around 4 thousand miles across towns and villages in Sverdlovsk region. When making pictures, they used a wide-angle lens cam and photographed from the height of 17 feet, which made it possible to create a special perspective — as if those who passed away are looking at us who live nowadays.
