Borderline – Les frontières de la paix
Borderline, Frontiers of Peace. In each photo there’s a gray or red-and-white marker stone, or a painted dotted line, or two kinds of asphalt; or a river, a wood, a meadow or a small valley. In this book, borders are polymorphous, bearing little resemblance to the lines on maps, even the ones on our smartphones. After the Schengen zone opened up, Neapolitan Valerio Vincenzo spent ten years traveling over 20,000 km to photograph these thresholds between 20 or so countriesproviding the date and the GPS coordinates. A journey through the often-rural surroundings of the borderlines that carve up Europe.
