"'Neither' is a photographic exploration of the hearts, dreams and fears of young women in Kaliningrad – a tiny and isolated Russian oblast on the Baltic Sea. Formerly part of East Russia, Kaliningrad only became part of Russia after the Second World War.
During the Cold War it closed its borders, and with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, it was severed from the mainland. An exclave of Russia and an enclave of the EU, Kaliningrad is left in the fragile position of being neither a part of ‘Big Russia’ nor truly a part of Europe."

"(...) The women I met and be-friended generously opened up their homes and their minds to me, guiding me through the stories of their region, helping me better understand the links between place, identity and history. This self-published photobook, designed by Dutch designer -SYB- interweaves my images with the words – both historical and contemporary – of these women. Neither seeks not to answer questions, but rather to give voice to the experiences of the women of Kaliningrad."
