Drama Machine : Pictures from a Russian Scene Paperback / softback


Russian photographer Sergey Sapozhnikov takes as his topic and inspiration a landmark building of Russian Constructivism, the Drama Theatre in Rostov-on-Don. Designed by architects Vladimir Shchuko and Vladimir Gelfreikh in 1930, it's an iconic work built in the impressive shape of a tractor. Like several other buildings from the period, it underwent various transformations and only recently a poor restoration works. In this sense, it stands as the example of a heritage from Soviet times that nowadays is asking for a renewed attention. Sapozhnikov's work offers an unusual insight of the structure as his expres- sionist gaze moves around a constructed scene, reminiscent of a theatrical space and responding to the looming shape of this falling giant.
