BORDERLANDS: THE EDGES OF EUROPE
“Borderlands: the Edges of Europe” is a collection of analogue photographs representing the people and places along the borders of Europe and the European Union, developed by photographer Paola Leonardi with the purpose of creating an online archive narrating life at the edges of Europe.
Leonardi is interested in concepts of identity, memory and territory and how those have been shaped by events, investigating how communities relate to the land they inhabit and to their European identity.
Borders are lines on a map, which the photographer follows traveling mainly on foot in order to foster casual encounters and collect stories along the way. The photographs explore the connection between people and territory and the significance of trans-national and trans-cultural identities.
This project concentrates on land borders, and the concept of geographical Europe is juxtaposed to that of political Europe/European Union. For example, it does not include the borders of Switzerland, which is not EU however does not have restrictions towards EU citizens.
