Since the Schengen Agreement of 1985, restrictions on moving between countries in Europe have slowly been erased. Netherlands-based photographer Valerio Vincenzo decided to document this change in his series “Borderline, the Frontiers of Peace,” a project which is especially poignant today, as the EU struggles with the immigrant crisis.

“With the help of a GPS and detailed maps, I have conducted many trips along these “erased” borderlines, with the intention of capturing the essence of these now-peaceful crossings,” writes Vincenzo. “Even if sometimes these pictures have been taken thousands of km away from each other, they all provide images that are far from the stereotype that we tend to associate with the notion of border. What is a border anyway?”

In 2012, the European Union won the Nobel Peace prize “for over six decades contributed to the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe.” Can we make the peace last?
