The first photograph was taken in Poland, the second in the Czech Republic, two countries that lived the rise and fall of socialism. On the first the utopia is recorded: the unattainable symbol, the hope of the future. On the second, an ossuary is seen: the only thing that is certain, death. This juxtaposition could be read as the end of utopia. Nevertheless, the photographs point to the tension that rules the core of human life: a constant movement between the ideal and the fateful.
