Asia Central Coming and NYPH09 Again

May 22, 2009

I’m off on a 5 week trip to Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. I’ll be using my blog to provide updates of my experiences. I’ve been photographing in the former Soviet Union since 2001 when I first went to Ukraine. I returned to Ukraine in 2005 and in 2008 made two trips to Russia and Mongolia. I know that this sounds like mission creep, but on each trip I feel the work getting more concentrated. The project has the working title of The Shadows in Between. This is meant to suggest the 19th century Tournament of Shadows. That’s the Russian expression for the struggle for dominance between colonial tsarist and British empires.The British called it the Great Game. In 21st century terms, The Shadows in Between suggests the position of the post Soviet States sandwiched between the two economic world powers of the European Union and China.

One more note about last week’s NYPH09. I was there under the auspices of SocialDocumentary.Net who were participating sponsors of the event. I just want to thank them for their support. I also want to post this photo that I took outside one of the galleries.Dumbo5680
