In collaboration with publisher Kehrer Verlag in Germany, we are pleased to be publishing the work of Mila Teshaieva. Her Critical Mass series “Promising Waters” looks at the realities of people living along the Caspian Sea in Azerbaijan, Kasakhstan and Turkmenistan – countries establishing themselves as independent nations post-Soviet rule. Possessing vast oil and gas resources, the new, yet-to-be-defined identity of these countries clashes with the traditional – and Mila documents this clash with images of communities stuck in isolation and altered landscapes.
