Publisher's description: Soviet Ghosts is an urban exploration behind the former Iron Curtain by photographer Rebecca Litchfield. First published in the UK by Carpet Bombing Culture, Litchfield's images sensitively and beautifully document the abandoned ghost towns left behind, and lost in time following the collapse of the Soviet Union. From Eastern Germany through Ukraine, Bulgaria, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Mother Russia and the despair of crumbling Chernobyl, these photographs deliver a compelling narrative of both moral bankruptcy and flawed ideology. Featuring stunning imagery throughout, Litchfield's road-trip through the former USSR breathes a new life into these forgotten places and finds a cold beauty in their post-apocalyptic decay. Essays in the book offer contextual depth to the images and examines how and why these once thriving communities became ghost towns, whether by natural disaster, man-made catastrophe or the march of time. Soviet Ghosts is an unbridled look at the former Soviet empire's wasteland.
