The fascination of destruction - Sasha Bezzubov's Wildfire at Gallery I/D in Miami

‘Wildfire’ could relate to South Africa, the border of a desert. Or an earthquake zone deep in Eastern Asia.

Yet, the picture series by Sasha Bezzubov came into being in California, that very glamorous US State, which is prone to fall victim to enormous wildfires way too often. The exhibited pictures document the outcome of the devastating conflagrations in the years 2003-2007.

The photographs evoke different kinds of emotions. They remind us of destruction in the post-war era and the aftermath of apocalyptic havoc. At the same time, the picture's composition reflects a fascinating beauty, underscoring untamed landscapes in cloudy shades of gold and brown.

Taking a look at the remains, the question arises if one should have been there, was there something that could had been done, maybe even prevent what happened – and whether the event has the same eligibility of existence as the past.

The Ukrainian-American photographer Sasha Bezzubov studied at Yale (amongst others) and has exhibited his works in the USA and Italy. ‘Wildfire’ is his first monograph.
