Fences, barbed wire, armed borderguards have suddenly become the new standard in Europe and when I in the early summer of 2015 was watching all the physical manifestations of something I thought belonged to the past – I decided to photograph how these “new” European borders and what consequences they have and will have for Europe and the hundreds of thousands of refugees and migrants who these days come to our borders. And at the same time be able to tell something to the scale of these changes and the impact the project is photographed with a custom-made drone purpose-built for this project. Its photographed over the last year.
