Publisher's Description

BORDER is a journey along the Russian border, the longest national border in
the world, which spans over 60,000 km. This book will take you on a unique trip from the warm regions of the Caucasus to the extreme cold in the North - to the Russian temporary ice base Barneo, drifting in the Arctic Ocean in proximity to the North Pole; from Kaliningrad Oblast – an exclave of Russia, its westernmost territory, to the eastern territories at the shore of the Pacific Ocean. 

BORDER is more than merely a geographical expedition, but a comprehensive photographic study of Russia’s most remote and often undiscovered areas. Exploring the connection between the disturbance of territorial boundaries and identities, Maria Gruzdeva finds elements representative of national identity and collective memory and asks questions about physical and emotional belonging. Landscapes and people portrayed and documented in Gruzdeva’s photographs and travel diaries, become part of a unique archive, a combination of researcher’s and a photographer’s rigorous investigation.

Maria Gruzdeva mostly works on long-term projects underpinned by extensive research.
