Last Shot on Earth (2020)

Last Shot on Earth (2020)
The last photograph on Earth is literally the last. Each photo here is a point where the ground ran out for a car equipped with a Google camera, taking pictures for the Google Street View service. Each photo-point has a pair, the photo on the other side of the invisible line, where the camera movement stopped. And for each such pair there is a space, terra incognita, which you will hardly ever see.
In each pair, one photograph is always taken in Russia, the other is always on the other side of the state border - Finland, Ukraine, Estonia, Norway ... Each pair of photographs is accompanied by a map, which indicates the shooting points and the distance between them.
Using these clichéd landscapes, I would like to talk about the difference between the digital and the real world, about the conventionality of boundaries and the absence of an author.
