Post-Soviet Visions: Shocking Images From Eastern Europe’s New Generation
Post-Soviet Visions is a shocking photo series revealing how Eastern Europe’s new generation looks and lives like. It’s a world of contrast, a place of uncertainty most of the time, but in the end, the new and rising generation feels like it will find its way.
Eastern Europe is a flourishing place for art right now because it brings something else to the table. After decades and decades of communism when art was censored and even forbidden, the new generation from former USSR (Soviet Union) countries is rising.
This is exactly what the Post-Soviet Visions photo series project is all about. Trying to show how life in former soviet countries looks like after the fall of the Iron Curtain.
The artist featured in this unique series come from countries like Georgia, East Germany, Latvia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan and Poland. The young generation present in each country has something in common even though all these artists were raised in different countries. Art is what brings them together because most of them grew up in similar mentalities implemented by the Soviet regime.
