About the book
This is a compelling, sad and beautiful road story: Luc Delahaye, photographer and melancholy storyteller, travels in winter across the dark landscape of Russia, where he takes an intimate look into the private face of Russia's moral and social crisis. This is an exceptional body of work, bridging the divide between art and journalism. The photographs are poetic - simultaneously terrifying, exciting, intimate, moving and very revealing. They offer many pleasures despite the depressing subject matter of a nation falling to pieces, in winter, through alcohol and drug abuse.

In The Press
'... photographer Luc Delahaye finds a country's soul ... Delahaye's sojourn is an epic new book ... one of the most compelling photojournalism monographs to emerge in recent years.' (American Photo)
