About this title:

Synopsis: In the closing months of 2009, Jarret Schecter took on his second epic train adventure, this time exchanging the vast landscapes of the USA, for the similarly vast interior of Russia. Schecter boarded the famous Trans-Siberian Railroad, the longest railway in the world, and began to photograph the view from his train window. Travelling three times between the two endpoints from Moscow in the west to Vladivostok in the east, he discovered a real perspective of the countrys immense heartland, which besides being dominated by forests and fields, was a huge area littered with impoverished villages, dilapidated industrial plants, and a smattering of non-descript cities. There were also breathtaking vistas, soaring landscapes, and snatched glimpses of people going about their daily life, unaware of their actions being observed and captured as part of his visual investigation of the country. Russia, the heart and soul of the former Soviet Union, no longer has that extraordinary status it once had, yes it often seemed to share with the USA a sense of a desolate and invisible interior. These images from the Trans-Siberian Railroad, itself a path from the West to the East, hint at a subtle yet tense negotiation between Moscow and an almost 5,778 mile heartland.

About the Author: In 1990 Jarret Schecter purchased a Pentax camera. Since then he has traveled the world. Committed to socio-political issues, Schecter believes that photography can bring awareness to social injustices the world faces today. Schecter, born in 1963, lives in New York City.

Book Description Trolley Books, United Kingdom, 2010. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Jarret Schecter here takes on his second epic train adventure, this time through the vast interior of Russia - taking pictures through the window of the Trans-Siberian railroad in the final months of 2009. What happens between Moscow and Vladivostok is not only predictive of what will happen in the worlds largest country both in terms of space and natural resources, but it also has some prophetic value with respect to the world in general. In many respects, this heartland or the body of Russia is an unpredictable and precarious place and, no less troubling, a Muscovite head on top that may be ambitious, arrogant or even vengeful. The images presented here, hint at a subtle yet a tense negotiation between Moscow and an almost 5,778 mile heartland. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9781907112218
