Beyond Reach

Published by Kehrer Verlag

Ethna O’Regan has been dedicated to the project Beyond Reach over the past few years, travelling the Mauerweg in order to capture the natural and urban landscape of the area and the horrific memories and trauma this landscape holds. Most of the images appear serene, with punctuations of barbed wires, bricks, murky waters, to disrupt our viewing and remind us that this trail is named the “death strip” for a reason and so we don’t forget the history that marrs this landscape. At the end of the Photobook, we are faced with a small selection of only some of the tragic stories and ends that took place during that time, in that place.
