Rafal Milach has been haunted by Russia and its seven people. He spent six years with seven different people in three cities: Moscow, Yekaterinburg and Krasnoyarsk. In their 30s, they are intermediates between the ineradicable Soviet mentality and the increasingly anxious Russian mind of today. Milach’s search is the kind which is almost impossible to visualize. And yet, what he collected, in his book ’7 Rooms’, is a fascinating and subtle journey into the loss of direction, into the sad and beautiful connection with the country.
The series ’7 Rooms’ is currently on display at C/O Berlin, Oranienburger Str 35/36, 10117 Berlin.
