The Moscow Project
The absence of idle elements
Kiosks – The windows of the world
Situated on the banks of the Moskva River, Moscow is the cultural, economic and scientific heart of Russia. Although Moscow is often talked about, it has been a place seldom visited. Its complicated politics, complex language and unstable economy have made it a difficult place to visit and photograph. Lately Russia has adopted a more relaxed approach to tourism. Due to this sudden rise in tourism Moscow is rapidly going through an unparalleled transformation. Urgently embracing modernity, yet grasping onto its past, it was the ideal time for the members of MAP6 to document this city in flux. Each photographer engaged with the city by focusing on a chosen theme exploring its history, geography and people.
