Fairy Tale Of Russia: Photographer captures gloomy side of Russia

Photographer Frank Herfort’s is originally from Leipzig, Germany. Few years back, he had a desire to study aesthetic aspect of social spaces. He was in Russia at that time, so this seemed to be the perfect place for his new project called “Time in Between – Fairy Tale of Russia”. His photo series captured very sad, melancholic atmosphere of daily life in Russia. It seems like the environment is almost too peaceful and too quiet. According to the artist: “The whole world is frozen in a condition of waiting.” The people in these photos seem to be blended in with surroundings and be numbed and dazed at the same time. They truly seem to be in between time and in between worlds. They seem as though someone put a spell on them and they are waiting to be awakened. However, there is a chance that no one is coming for them and they’ll stay in this state for eternity.
