It’s been a while since I have been to Russia, and there are quite a few reasons why I have been pushing this project off.. but I have finally finished my travel documentary photography essay on Russia. This project, which I have named “Made of Steel” is a little photo series and essay that I put together from my time in Russia with Tree working on our project Kreesha. I will be publishing these images (as well as a handful more) on my website soon. In the meantime, please head over to Huck and check out the editorial photography story I put togetherĀ for them.


Made of Steel is a story of single industry towns in rural Russia, left behind when the Soviet Union disbanded. “Monogorad”. These towns were made for one purpose, and when the USSR fell apart, handfuls of these towns survived by private businesses and people buying factories, but others were left without any economy or direction. This travel documentary photography story is of these towns. Of what happens to them and what they look like now.
