A guide to the New East

Time travel: a remembrance of things past

Alexander Veryovkin's photography is an exploration of time and space. No surprise given that the St Petersburg-photographer studied astrophysics at university. With his first book, Cluster E, published last year, Veryovkin takes the reader on a journey through the spaces we inhabit, looking at the relationship between photography and time. "It is known that light from an object cannot reach the observer immediately," he says. "It takes some time before the signal overcomes the required distance. Thus, when we look at something, we always see it in the past. It is not the same as in the moment."
