On the 100th anniversary of Russian Revolution and Twenty-five year after the collapse of of the URSS, this photographic project represents a “journey” through Russia and its former satellites states within which still today preserve the atmosphere of the “Russian soul”. The title of the project, Russian Ark, is a tribute to Aleksandr Sokurov's movie, where a noble French diplomat and a voiceover drive the viewer through the halls of the Hermitage Museum, retracing the main events of the Russian history. Likewise, I try - with my images - to drive you through the atmosphere of the Russian soul as if you were at the cinema, watching a long take.
