During winter and spring 2016 Sharon Ritossa took photographs of foibe, deep natural sinkholes typical of the Karst region, along the Italian, Slovenian and Croatian borders that were used at the end of World War Two as mass graves to hide the bodies of Italians, Croats, Slovenes and Germans killed for political reasons.
Ritossa's creative research, aiming at reflecting on how the geological structure of a geographical region can affect its social and historical events, gave birth also to a photographic map inspired by historical military maps.
