The series Human Territoriality by Swiss photographer Roger Eberhard explores former borders, across the globe and throughout human history. Some have slowly moved over time, due to natural or human landscape transformations, others have vanished with the fall of empires and shifts of political and religious powers.
Borders act as tools of separation, dividing here and there. Meanwhile they define what lies within the boundaries, instilling a claim to permanence and protection.
In a time of mass migration, border walls and spreading nationalism, Eberhard captures the inherent instability and transience of human demarcations.
