The ongoing project explores individual lives set against traditional values, personal memories, wishes and expectations in Tatarstan – a transitioning semiautonomous republic within Russia.

Barefoot on the road, swimming in the river Kama, food stamps in the magasin. Sometimes back in Berlin there is a certain smell that reminds me of Tatarstan. Then it draws me back into the region, that, after the Soviet Union fell apart, is searching for it’s identity.
