States That Do Not Actually Exist. (Flash, in english, but link is in french). Norwegian photographer Jonas Bendiksen, with credentials from Magnum, has been working on a project he calls SATELLITES. It is a photographic journey through the scattered enclaves, unrecognized mini-states, and other isolated communities that straddle the sourthern borderlands of the former USSR. The itinerary goes through such places as TRANSDNIESTER, a breakaway republic in Eastern Europe, ABKHAZIA, a unrecognized country on the Black Sea, the religiously conservative FERGHANA VALLEY in Central Asia, the SPACECRAFT CRASH ZONES between Russia and Kazakhstan, and the JEWISH AUTONOMOUS REGION of Far Eastern Russia.
