Jacob Aue Sobol: Arrivals and Departures

Jacob Aue Sobol: Arrivals and Departures


The Magnum photographer Jacob Aue Sobol rode the Trans-Siberian Railway through Russia, Mongolia, and China to create his new series, “Arrivals and Departures.” “The work,” he explains, “is a travel through time. Mile by mile, we cross the post-Communist superpowers and gradually move closer to something that once was distant and exotic.”

“The distances are huge, especially through Russia,” Aue Sobol continues, “but the fact that you pass every tree, every house, makes it something special. It makes you feel a stronger connection between the places and people.” And, he points out, the journey is an internal one, too, “an investigation of the emotional states that control us, inspire us, and keep us moving.”
