Chernysheva shows photographs of people performing monotonous and strenuous tasks with a dignity that is not pathetic but at times even subtly comical, in the series Guard (2009). The men are guarding all kinds of ‘objects’ or ‘installations’ with their sheer physical presence, but at first sight, it’s not clear what they are guarding. The images are missing objects, persons or installations worth guarding. The men become part of the environment rather than that they are a human presence. They become their jobs.
