About

Soviet Innerness tells about the places where wallpaper is torn and Pravda peeks out; where coats of paint layer, dilapidate, and eerie flowers blossom; where time stands still and the unheimlich is comfortable.

Decay, abandoned, rotten and derelict around the former Eastern Bloc is what Elena and Alessandro delight in exploring, capturing and archiving.

Soviet Innerness is evidence of the disturbing issue of their peeping behind (iron) curtains.
