Construction and deconstruction of the Russian landscape.
Click to read more Russia has always been very different from the rest of Europe, unique in size and culture, but with a very specific, different and shifted development. It is that gap that attracts and nourishes the photographer's inspiration. Between the bustle of Moscow and the decline of small single-industry towns, rural desertification and urbanization, power lost and restored, hell and paradise, this photographs reflect and document the evolution of those landscapes built and deconstructed by man. This construction/deconstruction opposition is the reflection of a contrast society, marked by successive fractures. Russia is changing a lot these days but as the writer Svtetlana Alexievitch noted “someone rightly pointed out that in five years, everything can change in Russia, and in two hundred years, nothing at all.”
