About Notes from Moscow
As a Western world capital, Moscow is now unique in the fact that it has the accouterments of a city but the economy of a village. Survival on the streets here is more akin to the 16th than the 20th century. For the first time since the coup which ousted Gorbachev, a Western photographer has compiled a detailed photographic essay on the effects of that event. In 64 photographs, Donovan Wylie dissects this great city as never before, distilling its human situation into a moving and coherent narrative of pain and joy, showing ordinary life thrown into turmoil by extraordinary circumstances.
