True Russia


“By nature, I’m an observer and I’m interested in all manifestations of life. I want to show St Petersburg and its inhabitants in all their colours: kind and naive, evil and scary, buffoons and holy fools” – Alexander Petrsosyan

A picture can perhaps not change the world, but it can increase our understanding of it. In True Russia, Ukrainian-born photographer Alexander Petrosyan brings us on a journey through the lives of the inhabitants of St Petersburg. His ambition is to stop the beholder in their tracks and wonder what is really happening.
