    Homeland

    2015 - 2016

    Homeland is a story about the sea, land and memory in the longest village in the country and also of how time affects and changes our sense of place. It is a multi-layered narrative within a self-published book in 2016 and serves a nostalgic representation of the place and also its recent history from World War II until the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 via interviews, notes and archival imagery. As the curtain fell, the local economy changed, and in 2004, upon joining the EU, it changed again. These historical shifts made a huge impact on the society and its dreams, many of which the younger generations abandoned.

    “Landscapes – actual, remembered or idealized – feed our sense of belonging to whatever place, region or nation that we view as homeland”

    Liz Wells
