“Soviet photo” 2012

Soviet photo – is the whole epoch, which gone irrevocably. On one side it is an odious magazine “Soviet Photo”, filled with communist propaganda. On the other side these were pictures of underground photographers of that times. Pictures of which could put into prison. To connect the today means reconsider that time. The time of ephemeral ideals and bitter disappointments. Rethink to understand what to do now.

The pictures and pages from the magazine “Soviet Photo” and the author’s works of the soviet period were used in this series

In April 2013, this project was honored as the best conceptual project of the year by the Sony World Photography Awards.
