" Vacation in a Non-Existent Country"

What do you do as a photographer who’s been kicked out of Russia? Travel to the fringes of the post-Soviet Empire and take vacations to places that, technically, do not exist.

Few photographers have ever been able to truly conceptualize or capture Russia after The Fall. Jonas Bendiksen is unique.
