In 2013, photographers Nico Krebs and Taiyo Onorato loaded up their 1987 Toyota Land Cruiser in Switzerland and headed east on an epic journey across Eurasia. Their ultimate destination: Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. Before embarking on this adventure, Krebs and Onorato had no clear sense of what they would find. Ahead of them lay a vast land mass, shrouded in a haze of history and global politics.

Continental Drift is a travel log straddling the fine line between documentation and fiction about unknown lands, their possible pasts and conjectured futures.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
