Photo project Forgotten Russia: Forlorn and dying villages — Part 1

Photo project Forgotten Russia: Forlorn and dying villages — Part 1

Forgotten Russia is a photo project of Russian blogger from the city of Bryansk Pavel Kapustin. This is a story about other people, people who live somewhere on the outskirts of the country, away from civilization, urban bustle and noise, in half-abandoned  villages which are forgotten by everyone.

The project intended to show ordinary habitants of outlying forlorn villages, their uneasy destiny, unique primordially Russian cultural environment, and way of life.

Continuation is here: the second part of the Project Forgotten Russia.
