Russia is unique due undoubtedly to its magnitude but also, most notably, to the inextricable contradictions that arise from it. A country of excesses and extremes, yet desperately empty and desolate, cold and hot, silent and howling, whose tragedies and turmoil permeate every inch of its landscapes and every one of its inhabitants. In a four-part portrait, we set off to discover an immense territory reflected in its photographic scene: unbridled, bustling, brave, and sometimes a little crazy. Meetings with photographers Elena Anosova, Misha Domozhilov, Alexander Gronsky, Valery Nistratov, and many others.

This film shows photographers turning to spaces far from the beaten track, from Saint Petersburg to Siberia, where the influence of the territory on the ethos and way of life of its inhabitants is particularly noticeable.
