Post-Soviet Russia in Provocative Visual Mise-en-Scenes of Sergey Chilikov

Sergey Chilikov (1953-2020) is one of the most outstanding practitioners of the ‘new’ photography which emerged in the USSR in the 1970s.

Closely linked to the Sots Art (Soviet Pop Art) movement, Chilikov’s work is a subversive response to the strict Brezhnev era of the USSR. Away from the oppression of public society and in the privacy of domestic situations, people were free to behave as they wished. Chilikov turned his lens upon his subjects in this liberated state. His work offers a glimpse into a fascinating past counter-culture that has striking resonance to our societies today.

Slightly NSFW.
