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.
