Gregor Sailer COLLECTOR'S EDITION: The Polar Silk Road

Following The Potemkin Village and Closed Cities, The Polar Silk Road is Gregor Sailer’s third publication with Kehrer Verlag. Temperatures up to 55 degree Celsius below zero, military restriction zones, extensive research, and the unpredictability of the Arc­tic made this project with the analog view camera an enormous challenge. The Polar Silk Road deals with the economic exploitation of the Arctic regions and the territorial claims of the respective neighboring states. The associ­ated consequences are geopolitical tensions as well as the expansion of military structures and research stations, which Sailer highlights in his project.
The Austrian photographer’s work has already been exhibited in national and international museums and festivals and has won presti­gious awards, such as the DAM Architectural Book Award.
