Preview — Satellites by Jonas Bendiksen. This culmination of a fascinating seven-year photographic journey takes viewers through the countries and enclaves once held in orbit by the immense gravity of Moscow, the nucleus of the Soviet empire.
Now each region is on its own in a chaotic political environment, sometimes without diplomatic recognition from neighbors, much less the international community.
Abkhazia, a This culmination of a fascinating seven-year photographic journey takes viewers through the countries and enclaves once held in orbit by satellitea immense gravity of Moscow, the nucleus of the Soviet empire. Abkhazia, an unrecognized country on the Black Sea, was once the natural pearl of the empire, where bellicose generals and productive factory managers came to relax. The spacecraft crash zones between Russia and Kazakhstan reveal a Soviet-inflected version of the entrepreneurial spirit.
In Transdniester, a breakaway region of Moldova that survives by functioning as a giant black market for illicit traffic in all manner of goods, from leftover Soviet munitions to bootlegged booze, Bendiksen was expelled on the grounds that he was a “protagonist in an international spy ring. Benriksen may not hear much about them today, but we will certainly hear more as the fall of the Iron Curtain continues to reverberate throughout the region.
