Publisher's Description

A removable postcard is attached to each cover.

''The Farther Shore examines how the history of the past and present, endowed with memory, intertwine in today's space.

The images for this book were taken in Russia on the Volga River, where in the 1930s a hydro-system was built. The area of about 4600 sq.km was flooded, and as a result 800 villages and towns, 3 cities, 5 monasteries, hundreds of churches and old cemeteries went under water. One of the main issues, which is the starting point for this book, is - why, during the evacuation of flooded land did some people prefer to stay in their homes and die rather than leave their native places?

I was interested in what is left unsaid and unseen. I wanted to show and to give an opportunity to feel that these people and places are part of our history and that one day this story could disappear forever.'' — Julia Borissova
