Charomushki Odyssey - Andrei Loginov


Sometimes, the most interesting time journeys happen by chance. This is what happened to Andrei Loginov, when he heard the story of an abandoned house of a photographer in a Belarusian village. Imagine a village, where life revolves around the collective farm (kolkhoz) and the young generation has moved to the city, in search of a better life.
Andrei Loginov, who discovered the photographer's abandoned house and continued to work photographically with the present-day inhabitants of the village, not only undertook a journey through time himself, but also takes us – the recipients of the project – along. The artist slipped into the role of the village photographer and continued his task. With the means of photography, he looped time: contemporary people are photographed in front of an old photo backdrop as if they were taking the places of those who posed in the 1930-50s.
