Frank Herfort: Imperial Pomp – Post Soviet High-Rise

Frank Herfort: Imperial Pomp – Post Soviet High-Rise
International Photography Grant 2019

In documenting a unique phenomenon, the German photographer Frank Herfort has journeyed to the most remote areas of the former Soviet Union. After the collapse of the regime, a strangely pompous architectural style sprung up throughout the new republic. It conflates the aesthetics of monumental Soviet architecture with the Western language of form seen in the twentieth century.
