Photographer Frank Herfort has spent over a decade in Russia, tracing the mystery and myth of the world’s largest country. Following his acclaimed project Imperial Pomp: Post-Soviet High-Rise, his latest book alternates between poignant realism and absurd fancies. His photographs of the wondrously surreal post-Soviet world are mesmerizing, cool, and thought provoking but most of all, they are strikingly human. In every image the people, everyday situations, architectures, and events tell their own individual stories. Yet seen together, they weave a fascinating fairy tale with a very contemporary twist. Book is now available.
An Ambiguous Journey Through the Beauty, Benevolence and the In-between - Cinematic, dream-like shots of Russia.

This project is also about the bizarre and inexplicable events that often occur in life—the moments that are not always easy to understand. Each image in this series stands alone and tell its own story, but together they seem to tell a whole fairy tale.
