Présentation de l'éditeur

Photographer Rebecca Litchfield captures many abandoned location's, which were either part of the Soviet Union or occupied satellite states during this period of history, including forgotten towns, factories, prisons, schools, monuments, hospitals, theatres, military complexes, asylums & death camps across the former communist states. These photographs deliver a compelling narrative of both moral bankruptcy and flawed ideology. Featuring stunning imagery throughout, this compelling road-trip through the old USSR, breathes new life into these forgotten places, finding both beauty and meaning in their post-apocalyptic decay. Extended essays by Tristi Brownett, Neill Cockwill and Professor Owen Evans, offer considerable contextual depth to the locations imbuing them with a wealth of connection and wonder. By virtue of its holistic approach, the book also explores how and why these once thriving communities became abandoned, whether by natural disaster, man-made catastrophe or simply through the march of time.

Stunning, breataking, and captivating! 11 juillet 2014

I've barely had a chance to do more than leaf through the book so far, but even just doing that sent chills down my spine. This lady is a talented photographer and the images captured in this book are absolutely breathtaking. My wife has already sat down with the book and looked over every page, even though she has little interest in urbex or Soviet history. Truly an amazing collection of work from a superb artist!

Simply stunning photographs, and fascinating narrative. 11 juillet 2014
Par A. R. Blenkinsop - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I preordered this book, and it finally arrived yesterday - it was so worth the wait! It is, quite simply, the best photography book that I've seen for anyone interested in Urban Exploration (Urbex), the beauty in decayed and abandoned objects and architecture, soviet history and the fall of the eastern bloc, or just great stories accompanied by unusual and beautiful photos from places most of us will never be lucky (or intrepid) enough to witness first-hand. At this price it's an absolute bargain - don't think twice, order yours today, you'll be glad you did!

Par Gerry Nathanson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I discovered Rebecca Litchfield's photography through a link on an Urban Exploration website. I immediately pre-ordered "Soviet Ghosts". While attractive, I would not call it a "coffee table" book. It is a profound, historical document. It is not for browsing or skimming. There is no table of contents, nor will you find page numbers. Each of the 8 sections is introduced by a superbly written synopsis of the socio-economic-political era that the photographs represent. At the end of the book, each location photographed is listed and described in detail.
With the visual acuity, perception, and passion of an artist and her command of the technology of photography, Rebecca Litchfield creates masterpieces of the abandoned but not to be forgotten. The risks she takes to capture these places with her camera can not be overestimated. That this monumental volume came to market just a year after the first pictures were taken is astonishing!

Like the layers of cracking paint long forgotten, there are layers to each chapter and image in Soviet Ghosts. 22 août 2014

Fascinating book. Exceptionally written and the photography is stunning. I have traveled throughout Western Russia and parts of Eastern Siberia, but I was never able to see these locations. These pictures, and stories, offer a glimpse into the world that was the Soviet Union; a glimpse at a proud and beautiful people. I admire the courage and work of Ms Litchfield and her team to preserve the visual history of these forgotten monuments. This book is a must for anyone interested in Russia, the Soviet Union or architecture. Every time I pick up the book, I notice something new in the photographs. Like the layers of cracking paint long forgotten, there are layers to each chapter and image in this book.

Her artful explorations through the old soviet union are fascinating and very well presented. I love abandoned spaces photos, and have for many years. This is a fresh, exotic take on that genre. It's a visually stunning book that is great to look at over and over again, and would make a wonderful gift or coffee table fixture for anyone who appreciates history, photography or fine art in general.

Highly recommended.

(unfortunately, amazon does not have this book in stock as of this review, so you will have to shop Barnes and Noble or borrow from your local library)
