Übergang by Josef Schulz, photograhpy of old european borders

photography

Josef Schulz is a polish photographer who has shot a really interesting serie called Übergang (transition in german). In his pictures you can see some of the buildings that composed the old borders in Europe, before the different gouvernments decided to open them more than 20 years ago.

I like the old-school vintage retro look that those buildings. On the other hand, I can’t stop thinking how weird was for our parents to have to cross the borders with the police controls and have to change the money as well. How useful is the Euro zone? Hope is not going to change any time soon!

I easily recognized this one because it is actually still working, this is the border from Andorra to Spain.
