Renacimiento // Rebirth (by Yana Toyber)

“‘Renacimiento’ es un proyecto de retratos bajo el agua, donde el sujeto es lentamente envuelto en agua caliente”, dice la fotógrafa Yana Toyber. “El agua limpia inmediatamente el sujeto mientras tomo fotos del proceso”. El agua se incluye comúnmente en ceremonias religiosas y rituales, y es visto como un purificador. El proyecto de Toyber explora los diferentes significados. “A los sujetos se les dice que se relajen, ya que están cubiertos de agua y, esencialmente, se ahogaron durante cortos períodos de tiempo. Cada sujeto tiene una variedad de expresiones a lo largo del proceso”. Todos los participantes son compañeros de Toyber, todos, jóvenes y dentro del mismo rango de edad. “No estoy muy segura de si estaban experimentando su propio renacimiento, sin embargo, sospecho que experimentaron algún tipo de intimidad física y espiritual ya que estaban completamente sumergidos en el agua.”

“‘Rebirth’ is an underwater portrait project where the subject is slowly enveloped in warm water”, says photographer Yana Toyber. “The water instantly cleanses the subject while I take photos of the process”. Water is commonly included in religious ceremonies and rituals, and seen as a purifier. Toyber’s project explores the various meanings. “Subjects are told to relax as they are covered in water and essentially drowned for short periods of time. Each subject has a variety of expressions throughout the process.” All of the subjects are peers of Toyber’s, all young and within the same age range. “I’m not exactly sure if they were experiencing their own rebirth, however, I suspect that they experienced some sort of spiritual and physical intimacy as they were fully submerged in the water.”
