Russia: A World Apart
Simon Marsden &
‘Here in photographs and
words are the results of three different trips to the Moscow and St Petersburg regions, a diverse mix of pre-revolutionary buildings and memorials, manor houses, palaces, churches, statuary and tombs. Each picture tells its own tale of what has been lost and what survives … these ruins give us a tangible sense of the past. Their history is everywhere, it seeps into the soil like rain or snow or blood to remind us of our fragile existence.’ SM
This book contains the last set of pictures taken by Simon Marsden before he died.
