Visa pour l’image 2012: Justin Jin


Advance and Retreat in Russia’s Arctic Russian bureaucrats call the Arctic the “Zone of Absolute Discomfort” - an icy hinterland awful to live in, but just habitable enough for hired men to extract billions of tons of oil, gas and minerals trapped under the tundra, giving Moscow immense resources to bully gas-hungry European neighbors. During visits to formerly secret towns and villages, Justin Jin was struck by the promise of wealth, by the inhabitants and the ecological crises. His work focuses on the people of the Arctic as history unfolds in a landscape of haunting fragility.
