Russia Through the Lens of a Russian Photographer (NPR)

Camera Lens

Russian photographer Valeriy Klamm felt that when foreign photojournalists came to work in his country they arrived with the pictures they wanted to send back home already in their head. In reaction, Klamm began visiting small towns throughout Russia and photographing the simple life in these rural villages. In 2009, Klamm compiled his images on a website and asked his photographer friends to share their images as well. To date more than 60 Russian photographers have contributed to his site. Read more about his project and view some of the photos.
