The City of
the Deported


In 2019, Viktoria Morasch and I were awarded the photojournalism grant Gabriel Grüner Stipendium to conduct a project in Kazakhstan.

The City of the Deported is a project focused on a city in Kazakhstan that was once the headquarters of a GULAG . Viktoria is the granddaughter of former Karlag prisoners, and together we delved into the emotional and geographical aftermath of massive deportations, as well as the profound underlying trauma that goes silent, by interviewing former Gulag-prisoners and their descendants.
