Description
This unparalleled collection of photographs documents the years surrounding the collapse of the Soviet Union. Through the camera lens Shepard Sherbell tells a story that language alone cannot. He captures in more than 200 black-and-white images the previously unseen reality of everyday life in the fifteen former Soviet republics. In these photographs--sometimes humorous, amazing, or troubling, always enthralling--Sherbell offers an unprecedented view of people caught in the crucial moment of transition between communism & capitalism, repression & freedom, security & anarchy. On assignment for the German weekly Der Spiegel, Sherbell traveled throughout the dismantled Soviet Union from 1990 to 1993 with more freedom than a citizen could have achieved. Unrestricted in his access to subject matter, he recorded the faces & lives of those who inhabit what was once a superpower. Mothers, mine workers, prisoners, farmers, housewives, children--Sherbell shows us without sentimentality how life looked for a people whose awe-inspiring capacity to survive has been--and continues to be--tested. Serge Schmemann provides a general retrospective & moving introduction to the book.
