Every war leaves traces, scars on the landscape and people’s psyches, traumas that resonate long after the conflict is officially over, passed down from one generation to the next. In Meinrad Schade—War Without War, the Swiss photographer documents those lingering, damaging marks of war in a particular place: the former Soviet Union.
Traveling over a period of ten years through Chechnya, Ingushetia, Kazakhstan, the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Armenia, and the Ukraine, Schade reveals the precariousness of life in those areas, oscillating between vicious war and uncertain peace. His portraits, still lifes, interiors, street scenes, and landscapes carry the viewer to remote places far from the headlines, and they make war’s lasting, little-considered human costs impossible to deny. A moving, troubling book, Meinrad Schade—War Without War is an unforgettable statement about what war leaves behind.
