Exhibition:The Lost Territories. CONTROL / Transphotographiques 2018
Project supported by Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage within the Culture Promotion Fund.
Nearly 25 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the unipolar has ceased to exist, and the empire is trying to regain its position in the region. Its power of influence radiates into the former Soviet republics, changing their attitudes and taking a variety of forms: the conflicts or accelerated national identity formation. For past 6 years Sputnik Photographers have been investigating if the people living in post-soviet countries still need to be awed by something that does not formally exist any longer.
