The edge of tomorrow
Little Diomede, Alaska, USA
In the middle of the Beringstrait, lie the two remote islands Little and Big Diomede. Big Diomede belongs to Russia and Little Diomede is part of the United States. While they are only 3 miles apart, the international date line seperates them by one day. Pressed against the steep edges of the rocky island, on the west side of Little Diomede, lies a small village.
Some 80 people, mainly native Inupiaq are living there. When they look out of their windows, to the west, they are not only looking at Russia, they are also literally looking at tomorrow.
This work is part of the 'view from up here' groupshow in the Anchorage Museum.
On show until Oktober 2016.
