Judith and Greta Uehling

The Crimea in general, and Yalta especially, has been coveted for over two centuries as an area of strategic geopolitical importance, agricultural productivity, and tourism. In these photographs, we traverse an uneven terrain, moving from images conveying a sentimental attachment to the natural beauty of the Crimea to the extreme discomfort of living in reclaimed, and half-built places. The Crimean Tatars, as the other inhabitants of Yalta and Crimea, see themselves not only as the rightful owners in their historic homeland, but the environmental stewards charged with caring for the ecologically fragile peninsula.
