DETAILS:

This picture is one of most important images from the series “Instant Tomorrow” that I finished in 2015. I began by photographing my neighbourhood: the most typical and mundane district at the edge of Moscow which has nothing but tower blocks, parking lots and ugly malls. At first it was just architecture and cityscapes but then I started shooting interiors, observing and studying the objects in contemporary living spaces. I began by photographing my neighbourhood: the most typical and mundane district at the edge of Moscow which has nothing but tower blocks, parking lots and ugly malls. At first it was just architecture and cityscapes but then I started shooting interiors, observing and studying the objects in contemporary living spaces. I found that the interiors I shot were predominantly white or pale in colour, minimal, almost empty, and very sterile. However, the snowy cityscapes stripped of colours and details fit the project really well, reducing the elements in the cityscape, creating a feeling of artificial architectural models. Here, everything is instant: from the objects, food, daily routines, to words and ideas. I am inspired by the banality of life: the trips to the supermarket, the doctor, the fitness centre, the beauty salons; the same routes, the same scenery, the labyrinths of make-up aisles in the malls, TV ads and so on. I drew a lot of inspiration from books and films: I read Jean Baudrillard, Luis Mamford, Boris Groys, the Strugatsky brothers, and watched films by Ulrich Zaidl and Roy Anderson.
