Nikon has partnered with me for a six week road trip covering nine countries in pursuit of the relics of Europe’s recent past – with a particular focus on the Cold War Era and exploring the former Soviet Union heartland. From an abandoned radar base to two long-forgotten Soviet spacecrafts, these images form part of Nikon’s Project Spotlight: Abandoned Places.
