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.
