Red Heat is a documentary project started at the time of global pandemic. From spring of 2020 than I was forced to stay at home during lockdown in Moscow I started a photo fixation. It’s start from a kind of boredom during my first isolation and after it has outgrown into shots of everyday life, city outskirts, metro carriages, shopping centers, homeless shelters but all the time with a mixed feeling of constant disquiet and isolation.
In early 2021 images from the January demonstrations and protests in support of opposition leader Alexei Navalny got into the series, and the series took on political overtones giving the name of the series new meaning.
“The red heat is hanging over ordinary people and isn’t going to disappear anytime soon”
