Europe's new borders.

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.
