All photographs are from Sobol’s collection Arrivals and Departures.

Jacob Aue Sobol traveled from Moscow to Beijing on the Trans-Siberian during 2012-2014, making numerous stops in rural communities along the way. He photographed the landscape and people he encountered, but Arrivals and Departures is not a work of documentary photography. Intimate, personal, and starkly beautiful, it is a collection to be absorbed in its entirety. (Hint: Sobol’s site is a great place to start.)
