Red Journey
by Nick Hannes
Nick Hannes spent a year in 2007 and 2008 travelling through the fifteen former Soviet republics in search of traces of the past and signs of social transition. Red Journey uncovers the various ways in which former Soviet countries are trying to redefine their national identity after the desintegration of the communist imperium. Hannes shows a region of contrasts covering extreme wealth amid heart-rendering poverty, unrestrained urban renewal that makes deprived neighbourhoods all the more visible, new dictators’ gilt cult images in a decor of faded glory.
