Occupy Wall Street

Following the economic crisis, the protest movement of Occupy Wall Street arose in New York in 2011 in opposition to the greed in the financial sector and the gap between rich and poor. The mass media characterised the protest as the work of extremists, punks, anarchists, and criminals with a vague set of demands. The Ukrainian photographer Sasha Bezzubov wanted to show that the demonstrators came from diverse walks of life to make clear how widespread the support for the protests was. As such, he illustrates the sheer depths of discontent with the financial sector and the extent to which the various economic problems affect a large majority of the population.

Albedo Zone (2012)

The series ALBEDO ZONE is comprised of black and white photographs of glacial ice and glacier water. They were made in Alaska, consistent with a scientific system that calculates the degree of reflection of solar energy from the terrain, a technique that is important to the study of climate change. This reflective capacity is termed ‘albedo’. Ice reflects warmth, whereas water absorbes it, a mechanism that strengthens warming effects. Bezzubov made silver gelatine prints of his photos, which gives the original prints a delicate beauty, which can not be duplicated in reproduction.

Things Fall Apart

Sasha Bezzubov has photographed the scenes of natural disasters all over the world. He visited Indonesia and Thailand soon after the tsunami. What he encountered there corresponded with his previous experiences: the immense forces of nature had changed the area into a surrealistic, apocalyptic landscape. Survivors wandered around vacantly, in search of their possessions. Bezzubov got the feeling that he had landed in a futuristic doom scenario. He imagined himself to be one of the last witnesses to the end of the world. He made Things Fall Apart (2004) in the style of traditional landscape photography, a picture of a future in which nature takes revenge for everything that mankind has done to it.
