Left field life in Leningrad. I live in Russia. I am not Russian. This is often amazing, but can also be difficult (especially when you have the vocabulary of a one year old) . My way of coping is walking the streets and taking photos. I photograph anything that takes my interest, but broadly my work can be categorised into black and white, industrial, street photography & soviet architecture. Oh, I take a lot of photos of Ladas too...

Soviet LP Covers

The Russian mistrust for anything old or second hand means that the vintage industry is all but dead, which is an absolute travesty as there is a goldmine of kitsch waiting to be discovered around the country. These album covers were photographed in the only vintage shop in the city, which has just opened in an abandoned warehouse on the outskirts of St Pete.
