Half Life

The predominantly Russian-speaking population of Visaginas, once the Soviet nuclear city of Sniečkus, slowly adapts to life in an alien country without their beloved nuclear power plant. Half Life is a long-term project started in 2004 to photograph the town and its people as it passes through a period of massive change and uncertainty. The photographs here were shot during 2011 and 2012 on a Voigtländer Bessa L 35mm camera with a whopping great 15mm wide angle lens and an iPhone 3.
