Over a period of several years, Polish photographer Rafal Milach accompanied seven young people living in the Russian cities of Moscow, Yekaterinburg and Krasnoyarsk. In intimate pictures, he portrays a generation caught up between the mentality of the old Soviet regime and Russia of the Putin era.

In this album, bound in synthetic leather, these snapshots of contemporary Russian life are accompanied by interviews with those portrayed.

Rafal Milach (b.1978) works as a freelance photographer for various Polish magazines, such as Newsweek (Poland), Polityka and Przekroj. For the past ten years, his art projects have frequently taken him to the region of the former Soviet Union. He has won multiple awards for his work, among them the World Press Photo Award and New York Photo Festival Award. Milach is co-founder of the photographers’ collective "Sputnik."
