Palimpsests

Max Sher's second book Palimpsests is a photographic exploration of post-Soviet built environment looked at from the perspective of the everyday and discarding the exoticizing visual tropes that dominate the narrative about this area. Photographed between 2010 and 2017 in over 70 locations across five post-Soviet countries, it captures the typical and most mundane elements of landscape that could be seen in almost any post-Soviet locality and are poignantly familiar to any post-Soviet person.

A Remote Barely Audible Evening Waltz

Max Sher's first book A Remote Barely Audible Evening Waltz examines how we perceive our past through images and what is the image of history in our collective minds. A collection of found photos edited into a poetic visual sequence plus a few images taken at the place where they had been found, the book also reveals a rare and unusual view of the private life of Soviet middle class in the 1960-80s.
