Houseguest : Feeling at Home on Sunny Street
Feeling at Home on Sunny Street includes a set of images I took when I visited a house in one of the villages near Barnaul in Altai region in Russia in June 2015.
I deliberately wanted to photograph a Russian home in a non-urban area and to capture things that would appeal to people who would like to explore Russia culture and identity from a less familiar angle.
By taking these images I aimed to illustrate how culture, hospitality, domesticity and warmth can produce an atmosphere of a Russian home.
All images were taken in a house of babushka Valya, who hosted me for 3 days of my stay in Russia. The house is located in Bayunovo Klyuchi village on a Sunny (Solnechnaya Street).
