Almost Europe is an independent project of documentary photography on the new eastern European borders.
This book is the first chapter of the project, a journey in search of Europe, on the road from Kaliningrad to Istanbul.
A first glance beyond the border both geographical and temporal, which brings one back in time, in a lost past and a visual journey, a walk inside the everyday life of the ‘almost europe’, that lies within the Old Continent’s social, political and cultural melting pot.
An escape from territorial and ideological fetters, from limitations to a profession that I nurture far away from the fast, superficial mechanisms of the media in the simplest way possible: by walking and taking photographs.
