“Photographing in the former Soviet Union between 1990 and 1994, van Manen provides windows into Russian lives after years of struggle under the regime. Leading Polish journalist Ryszard Kapu ci ski, who died last year, noted in his introduction to van Manen’s work that her lens stands apart from the typical journalistic report on Russia, capturing the ‘most inaccessible of places – the homes of ordinary people – in order to show us how millions of Russians live and sleep, what they eat, what they look like in their everyday life, in their flats, at their tables, in their beds.” Phenomenally beautiful.
