Research

It is not exactly on the theme of borders but I am looking at different stories at the moment that are somehow relating to what I am trying to do in order to find a working 'template' for my project. Some images that I have kept returning to over the past year is Gideon Mendel's photographs of last summers floods that affected many parts of the U.K. The images are interestingly juxtaposed with his images of floods in India that happened around the same time. They feel quite bizarre and yet so real. The work was published in the Guardian's G2 supplement last year and author Maggie Gee wrote a really intelligent and thought provoking article titled Drowned Worlds to accompany the images.

Hello Anna,

I just thought it may be interesting for you to research a bit the political, social and economic changes regarding the potential situation in Maldives as the biggest example of future worlds underwater.

Lately I keep reading articles about this place all the time...

Hello you... a very intresting pic gallery and article.. thanks for sharing this. I like these comparisons of two worlds apparenlty far away but with striking similarities. I jsut watched a video on a meeting of tsunami survivers in Tamil Nadu (India) and of Catherina in New Orleans... which was really interesting. I have a copy if you wish
