5.0 étoiles sur 5 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!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Gorgeous! 18 juillet 2014
Par J. Kramer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Just saw an article featuring several of the photographs from this book. They're stunning. Rebecca isn't just an intrepid, courageous explorer, she's a top flight photographer as well. Note that many of these locations aren't just dangerous to get to and explore because they're guarded or loaded with radiation, but also because they're in varying stages of decay; these places aren't always structurally safe to enter. To get these photos, though, those are the risks you have to be prepared to take.

I haven't yet seen the whole book. My only nitpick so far is with the Amazon description, so I don't know if it relates to Amazon or the book. "These photographs deliver a compelling narrative of both moral bankruptcy and flawed ideology."

Seriously? Go into ANY abandoned structure and you can get that. Definitely check out the American prison system, let alone Guantanamo, and you can get that. Look up photos of abandoned theme parks, hospitals, hotels, government buildings and military bases on the web. As for ideologies: ALL ideologies are flawed, and there's no nation on earth that can claim to be above moral bankruptcy. Ever. Not even imaginary nations like Atlantis escaped that. If this is the bland, obvious narrative that these photos are assembled around, then they're wasted on such a boring, tawdry point.

What one can hope for is to get a sense of the past life of such places, of the people who built them, lived or worked or were imprisoned in them. In this respect, from the few photos I saw, Rebecca delivers. One of the photos features a wall with the some of the lyrics of "L'Internationale" in Bulgarian, and it's hard to get more evocative than that. (You don't have to know Bulgarian; just google the song title for the translation in English.) Those were the ideals they were striving for, and by those words we can measure how they succeeded, and how they fell short, and in comparison, take some warning lessons for ourselves.

Elsewhere, there's a fantastic photo of an abandoned Soviet train engine that I found particularly striking. I'm sure other readers will find other images more powerful for them. The Bulgarian location from which the cover was drawn is spectacular. The photo of the submarine is a little out of place, since it's located in England, and has been a museum ship for years. It's not technically abandoned, as it was decommissioned and sold into private hands. Still, that doesn't detract from the consistent beauty and superb craftsmanship of Ms. Litchfield's work. I highly recommend her website to see more of her work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Simply stunning photographs, and fascinating narrative. 11 juillet 2014
Par A. R. Blenkinsop - Publié sur Amazon.com
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!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Gorgeous 5 août 2014
Par Violet Crumbles - Publié sur Amazon.com
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)
