Portraits From Small Town Russia Captured With An iPhone
These portraits from small town Russia captured with an iPhone reveal how life in the former Soviet country is actually like for most people. Everybody thinks of Eastern Europe as a place where time stood still, and judging by most of these photos, at least for Russia, some of that preconception applies.
Dmitry Markov camera was stolen from the orphanage where he was working. Being a photographer, the camera is your bread and butter so Dmitry had to improvise. He started taking photos with his iPhone and the results are an insight to a post-Soviet world with a past still very much present in the day to day lives of the people living in small town Russia.
Dmitry Markov, former journalist, now uses photos to tell his stories. This series features the people of Pskov, a small town in Russia, close to the Estonian border.
“I chose for myself a theme in life and work, a topic that interests me and that worries me as a person,” says the photographer. “Photography allows you to grasp states and feelings that are difficult to describe with text”.
