Archipelago Russia – photo essay by TerraProject

TerraProject is a collective of award-winning documentary photographers based in Italy. The team captures current themes from around the world and have been published in Time, The Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair and more. Recently, they travelled to Estonia on a trip along Russia's border.

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 suymbiotic relationship between cultures and communities living across border.
