Precise and incorruptible: Christoph Grill’s view of the states in the former Soviet Union

In grand photographs, Christoph Grill (*1965 in Austria) documents the signs of decay in the successor states of the Soviet Union and other regions in the former East Bloc. His photographs of Albania, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Armenia, Nagorno-Karabakh, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan capture unsentimental portraits of everyday life: children playing amid the ruins of communist utopias, triumphal ararches in the middle of nowhere, grass growing in the cracks of military parade grounds. Grill‘s photographic notes locate the things seen on his travels, the people he encountered, and their will to survive, also—and in face of—the striking symptoms of decline.
