Russia is unique due undoubtedly to its magnitude but also, most notably, to the inextricable contradictions that arise from it. A country of excesses and extremes, yet desperately empty and desolate, cold and hot, silent and howling, whose tragedies, and turmoil permeate every inch of its landscapes and every one of its inhabitants. In a four-part portrait, we set off to discover an immense territory reflected in its photographic scene: unbridled, bustling, brave and sometimes a little crazy. Meetings with photographers Elena Anosova, Misha Domozhilov, Alexander Gronsky, Valery Nistratov, and many others.

Amid the splendours of Moscow and the harshness of the rural provinces, the country manoeuvres between many contradictions. This part offers a photographic look at the profound changes that have taken place in Russia since the end of the 1980s and their impact on society.
