“The Farther Shore” is about how the history of the past and present endowed with memory intertwines in today's space. The pictures were taken in Russia on the Volga River where in the 1930’s was built a hydrosystem and 4 6oo sq. km the area was flooded. One of the main issues which became starting point for the creation of this book is why during the evacuation of flooded land some people preferred to stay in their homes and die but not to leave their native places?"
