Among the discoveries via « Calvert 22 Foundation » in London, Andrey Shapran seems to me like an echo the « Restricted Areas » project from Danila Tkachenko.
Less farless in his project, less distant « Lands at the Edge of the World, Southern Kuril Islands, Chukotka, Kamchatka, 2005-2015 » puts the light on a strange and strong landscape from an extreme climate into polar siberian zone up north Russia, with emblems from soviet union stucked and eroded in the far reaches of the arctic latitudes.
Shadings of multiple greys with some touches of colors, here and there.
Andrey Shapran was born in Riga, Latvia.
You will find some more photos here: North Cape. Chukotka for New East Photo Prize exposition, Calvert.
Danila Tkachenko was born in Moscow in 1989. In 2014 he graduated from the Rodchenko Moscow School of Photography and Multimedia, department of documentary photography.
Part of his work, “Restricted Areas” project, capturing and captivating, like a fossilisation of the Soviet era, is exposed to Calvert 22 Foundation in London: Power and Architecture Exhibition Program.
