Frontiers of Peace

For the last ten years or so, Valerio Vincenzo has travelled the European borders, the 20,000 kilometres of frontiers that have faded away under the effects of freedom of movement. These borders come in many forms, materialised by a road, an electric fence, a river, a painted line on the tarmac or a milestone. The Italian photographer plays with horizons and vanishing lines to depict these barricades that no longer exist, pointing to what the eye can no longer see. Borderline is an ode to the peace and freedom enjoyed in Europe at a time when nations are beginning to shut themselves away.
