Photographer Fabian Dankl travelled to Kaliningrad to photograph his Three Colours series. His particular focus was on the Pan-Slavic colours and the self-awareness reigning in the Russian exclave. Even though Kaliningrad lies about 1250 kilometres west of Moscow and beyond the Russian border, the colours blue, white an red are found in many places.

“Even though, or maybe because, Kaliningrad is geographically separated from the motherland, I couldn’t deny my amusement at the national pride that is very much alive there,” Dankl says. With a particular capacity to discover bizarre everyday situations and curious details, Dankl took his pictures in places far from the history-rich, tourist attractions. “I’m interested in the small alleyways off the squares, the courtyards behind the museums, and the dives next to the restaurants, and I look out for the symbolism of the national colours and how it is revealed.”
