These Photos Will Blow Your Mind – Russia In The 90s Through The Lens With French Photographer Lise Sarfati

Lise Sarfati is a French photographer. Her images of cities in Russia and young people in the United States paint a sometimes despondent picture inspired by her own imagination.

Born in Oran, French Algeria, Sarfati grew up in Nice, France, graduating in Russian from the Sorbonne in 1979 with a thesis on Russian photography. In 1986, she became the official photographer for the Académie des Beaux Arts. From 1989 to 1998, she lived in Russia, photographing decaying industrial sites and abandoned young people in Moscow, Norilsk and Vorkuta. Her first book, ‘Acta Est’, presents 43 of her Russian photographs and explains her imaginative appreciation of deterioration, change and beauty.
