These images, reminiscent of the vision of Andrei Tarkovsky, are distilling six years of travel across the former Soviet Union. The book is divided into a quiet series of black and white photographs, which won the Leica Oskar Barnack Award in 2003, and color images that crystallize the intensity of Moscow in winter.
