this place

These delightfully eerie photos are by St. Petersburg artist, Alexey Titarenko, from his series on St. Petersburg (1991-2009). Extended exposures have blurred – sometimes down to a ghostly presence – the figures within the frame. I love this effect in this context because the half-presence reminds us that history exists within the landscape..and how people are an integral part to a place. Titarenko’s photos offer an appreciation of his city, while making me think, “Lives were lived here.” via. NOW, what Russian novel needs to be read…
