The works from these series are almost oldest my works. For creating them I was used my childhood film negatives when I was 14 years old (1989 year), photos from family archive, and some found photos. The works are created re-photographing on old soviet time B&W film and enlarging sometimes only small fragments from source photographs.

I looked through these books with horror and then for many months I could not calm down. When I was alone at home I could sit in the bathroom for hours and think about different kinds of death that my dear ones or me might befall. These could be the most impressive memories from my childhood. Read Less
