These Photos Depict the Universal Longing for Summer

Ukraine-based photographer Dmitry Bayer explores the elusive appeal of summer in his latest series Still Summer. Accompanying the images is a poem reflecting on our relationship with the season – how we put it on a pedestal and expect brighter days in more than one sense.

Summer.

Could it be infinite?

We’re waiting every year for this season, again and again. 

Is it worth it? 

We think our problems will vanish in summer, we’re waiting for the miracle that will save us. 

What if I put this warm mood on cold seasons, will something change? 

I don’t know. 

So, let it be infinite.
