This book contains photographs made between 2010 and 2013 in Moscow and depicting combinations of visual elements, that are expected to be recurrent throughout post-Soviet cultural landscape. While these situations are vested with the potential to repeat in other locations, the cityscape of Moscow is seen as representative of any such location. This is based on following related assumptions: (1) the prosperity of the Centre being the historical aim of Russia’s eastbound expansion and the centre-to-periphery migration being it’s main driving force were turning new settlements into replicas of the Main city existing as a function; (2) the recent reversal of the centre-to-periphery migration to the opposite trend has resulted in a higher-than-before intensity of human and financial resources in Moscow, leading to the most pronounced change in cultural landscape; (3) being part of one culture all Russian inhabited localities demonstrate shared principles, and these are visible with special acuteness in Moscow. The book comprises 63 colour plates, preceded by an introductory text by the author and followed by an alphabetical index, each photograph is accompanied with a textual description.
