Year 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, when the Tsar was defeated and the Soviet Union began to take shape. We traveled along the 5700 km of borders between Russia and eight states. Cultural, economic and political relations link these countries through an osmotic relationship with Russia.
In "Archipelago Russia" we explored the imaginary and physical lines dividing Europe from Russia, going from Belarus, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland and Ukraine, documenting the landscape and the people living there. The perception was that of a suymbiontic relationship between cultures and communities living across border.
The work is a co-production of four leading media outlets: M le magazine du Monde (France), BuzzFeed (USA), Internazionale (Italy) and Politico Europe (Belgium) with the support of Canon Italia.
