Milana, Rizvan, and Ravida were born as refugees. Their father fled from the Prigorodny District in North Ossetia to Ingushetia and found shelter in a communal building that had previously housed prisoners carrying out community service. The other refugees are slowly drifting away, allowing the Dezaurov family to take over their vacant rooms instead of being confined to the single room in which they had lived until recently.

The Summer Print 2018 features two girls portrayed in a park in Chelyabinsk at the end of May 2003. I was there to produce a series for my Graduation from the art academy. A selection of that work has been published in my graduation book Communism & Cowgirls. Recently, for the first time in fifteen years, I started looking back at that archive. The largest part of the work consists of portraits of unknown people in the public space. Together with Kominek Books I am working on compiling a selection from this archive, which we want to publish in a book titled The Unknown. This photo is part of that selection.

LIMITED TIME PRINT OFFER: This exclusive handmade analogue c-print (36 x 42 cm) of a frozen vessel in Siberia is now available for only 148 euros excluding framing and shipping. Once the season is over, the image is no longer reprinted. The number of buyers determines the print run, up to a maximum of 25. This offer runs until 30 June 2018.

The Spring Print of a frozen vessel is made early 2008 in the bend of river Angara that meanders through the Siberian city of Irkutsk. Irkutsk is the most important economic centre in East Siberia and famous for the Trans-Siberian Railway that stops here. Ten years ago, I travelled to the Russian Urals and Siberia, among other places, as part of my project 101 Billionaires. Far away from the glitter and glamour of Moscow, 101 Billionaires portrayed the vast majority of other Russia.

LIMITED TIME PRINT OFFER: This exclusive handmade analogue c-print (36 x 42 cm) of young wrestlers in Abkhazia is now available for only 145 euros excluding framing and shipping. Once the season is over, the image is no longer reprinted. The number of buyers determines the print run, up to a maximum of 25. This offer runs until 31 March 2018.

Wrestling is not only popular in the North Caucasus, but also in neighboring Abkhazia. These boys train in a room in the cultural centre of Tkuarchal. If they aspire to international competitions, the question remains whether they can ever participate under their own Abkhazian flag. The Olympics authorities have forbidden Abkhazian athletes from competing under their own colors.

LIMITED TIME PRINT OFFER: This exclusive handmade analogue c-print (36 x 42 cm / 14.2 x 16.5 in) of Kids house pet on his bed is temporarily available for only 145 euros excluding framing and shipping. This offer runs until 31 December 2017. The number of buyers determines the print run, up to a maximum of 25.

My neighbour Kid – the subject of my new project Man Next Door – was a huge animal lover. He lost his beloved pit bull after it viciously attacked someone and had to be put down. When his wife left him, he stayed on in the house with his other great loves: two ball pythons named Kleintje and Pikachu. The snakes only needed food every 40 days. He usually fed them in their terrarium, but he also liked letting them loose on his sofa or bed where, if it was feeding time, he gave them live mice and rats. Kid never felt sorry for the rat: “Basically, he presses him to death immediately. More or less.”

Without doubt my favorite vodka-soaked evening while photographing Sochi Singers in 2011 was in restaurant Lilya in Lazarevskaya, where Dimitry Bum performed the song ‘Digi Digi’. Despite the English lyrics, the song is wildly popular all over the Caucasus. Actually, we have never heard the song outside the Caucasus. Please click on the link below to see a video of Dimitry performing ‘Digi Digi’.

By accident I stumbled into Cement Town in 2007, a small suburb of the East Siberian industrial city Angarsk. Several times I went to cultural center Druzhba, a dilapidated building in Cement Town that once must have been a great and sparkling Soviet palace. This girl was sitting next to the dance floor during the Friday night disco, while DJ Artiom played deafening electro-house for a crowd of 30 residents.

Additional option after purchase of a Season Print: Mounting and framing

Following the quick sale of Winter prints, there were several requests if the work could be framed. The answer is yes. We looked for a durable system and an appropriate price. The additional cost for mounting on 1 mm aluminum and framing including anti-reflex, UV protective glass is 115 euros (including VAT). Shipping is not recommended due to the risk of breaking glass. Pick up from my studio in Utrecht is possible by appointment.

Of course you can also still order this analog c-print without framing. Better be quick. There are currently 4 prints left of the ballet class and 11 days to go.

Four new sets of postcards from The Sochi Project

vier_sets_postcards

In 2010 Arnold van Bruggen and I published a leporello containing six Christmas cards from The Sochi Project. The set was highly popular and quickly sold out. Since then, reprinting the Christmas cards was high on our wish list. For all kinds of reasons, we did not manage to organize it so far. But that has finally changed. Our new christmas card leporello is now available. While working on the new edit of the Christmas cards (which ultimately changed little compared to the previous one), we thought it could be nice to make some more sets. Not in the last place because we love postcards. Check them out and order them while you can.

New shipping rates in online store
09.12.2016

After introducing my new website almost three weeks ago we made some changes, mainly to improve some foibles in the store. Most important issue: shipping costs. Some non Europeans found it rather expensive to pay € 18.00 shipping costs to receive one set of six picture postcards. Well, you are right. Sorry for the inconvenience. Costs have now dropped by eighty percent. I am very grateful to everyone who has tested my website and attempted to buy Christmas cards in my shop. Thank you all for your help and advice.

My first day to commemorate the Victory of the Great Patriotic War (WWII) took place on May 9, 2003 in Chelyabinsk. I had just landed for the first time in Russia and had no idea what was going to happen. Fortunately I had taken my large format camera that day in the hope that I could take some portraits on the streets. It happened to be a photographers paradise. Proud personalities in magnificent uniforms against wonderful backgrounds. I repeatedly had to change my films outside, with sweaty hands in a light-tight changing bag. Many of the portraits taken on that day - including this lady - ended up in my first book Communism & Cowgirls.

Until January 1, 2017, this analogue c-print can be purchased for only 145 euros (excluding frame and shipping). The number of buyers determines the print run, up to a maximum of 25.
