Park in Estonia, by Sara Rhodin


Transitional Spaces in Post-Soviet Estonia

Dodd Research Center West Corridor
Curator: Jean Nelson

Sara Rhodin was a Fulbright Scholar in Estonia from 2006 to 2007. While there, she undertook a photography project on the residual effects of the Cold War on Estonia’s landscape and culture. Her photographs, which depict former military bases, closed cities, and abandoned government buildings, capture the dynamic quality of the Cold War’s physical manifestations on the landscape. Most of the photographs were taken in Narva, Sillamae, Paldiski, Klooga, Kiela, and Tallinn. Rhodin is a graduate student in Russian and East European Studies at Harvard University.

These photographs are on display from March 16 through April 20.
