In Living Places in Russia, photographer Dyranda Prevost and architect Natalia Dushkina have conveyed life in Russia at a critical moment in history, recording 22 homes in both city and country. Westerners remember the Berlin Wall, and its momentous fall that followed glasnost and perestroika; this book reveals the concealed, historic changes to the walls containing ordinary Russian people since the 1917 Revolution. Documented in 1990-1991, and completed in 1999, the images and voices in this book are a revelation; a "collective image" of various professions and strata living in a variety of buildings built in different periods. These photographs capture the ambience of a lived-in 'place' and the messages conveyed by its objects. The interviews allow the inhabitants to tell their own stories and express their constant longing for freedom and tranquility, epitomized by life in the countryside - in however humble a place that may be.
