The Republic of Molossia

Drawn to small places with improbable histories, photographer Léo Delafontaine could be described as a modern day explorer. Upon the discovery of the Principality of Sealand, a military platform situated on international waters ruled by a constitutional monarchy, he knew this would be the start of a new documentary project. After some research he realized these independent entities, or Micronations, as the series is titled, are not an isolated phenomenon and many other similar nations exist throughout the world.

As part of a recent tour of a selection of Asian countries, he visited Japan, where he was immediately drawn to Tokyo’s Tsukiji Fish Market. As the largest seafood market in existence, Brivio explains, the scene positively bursts with activity as vendors unload astounding quantities of fish meat to avid buyers.

Ribe, Denmark-based photographer Henrik Emtkjær Hansen is drawn to mysterious regions near the Wadden Sea, capturing areas along its dikes at times of silence, when few people populate the low-lying marshland. Casting his images in moody green and blue tones, Hansen creates a poetic vision of the Denmark shoreline, imbuing the natural landscape with emotive powers similar to those of the great Romanic painters.
