Alexey Titarenko on Photographing Russia's Soviet Years

The photographer Alexey Titarenko is one of the most prolific fine art photographers that continue to cover the enigmatic country of Russia. His breakthrough series "Nomenklatura of Signs" portrayed the real Soviet life behind the Iron Curtain.

It was during these years that the ruling elite called "Nomenklatura" who enjoyed exclusive privileges of the totalitarian regime and the Perestroika, a series between mockery and tragedy as the images were collages of negatives, photographs, individual objects, and installations. Moreover, his "City of Shadows" showed life post-Soviet years. Such depiction of Soviet life was deemed criminal offense during the time.
