Nikolay Felipovich Khokhlov - 89 years old - has worked for the secret service all of his working life. He started at a young age during the Second World War, where he visited hospitals in the region around Krasnoyarsk searching for soldiers who had injured themselves on the way to the front in order to avoid the war. During his career with the KGB he was promoted to lieutenant colonel and transferred to Sochi. There he became responsible for spying on foreigners. “If you’d walked around Sochi at that time, you can be sure I’d have been watching you every minute of every day,” he laughs.

LIMITED TIME PRINT OFFER: This handmade analogue c-print (36 x 42 cm / 14.2 x 16.5 in) of a girl in a kommunalka in Chelyabinsk is now available for only 150 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 December 2019. ⁠

In 2003 I travelled for a month across Chelyabinsk region in the Russian Ural. Andrey, a befriended student who often accompanied me, took me to his family in a typical kommunalka; an apartment building where several families share one apartment. Everywhere people were hanging around in dark corridors and haphazardly I started making portraits of whoever I met.

LIMITED TIME PRINT OFFER: This exclusive handmade analogue c-print (36 x 42 cm / 14.2 x 16.5 in) of Nikolay Semilitov in Muslyumovo in Russia is now available for only 150 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.

In 2004 I graduated with a book entitled ‘Communism & Cowgirls’. On the back of the book was this portrait of Nikolay Andreyevich Semilitov, which I made of him with my large-format camera while he patiently waited on the side of his bed. He lived in a small one-room apartment in Muslyumovo, one of the villages I visited in the region that had been severely affected by nuclear pollution.
