Russia has undergone a radicalchange over the last two decades. It has changed from being a socialist state-­‐run system, with central planning based on cooperatives,to a market economy.

The result of  this transition has been the emergence of two social strata: the  nouveau riche, which surfaced after the fall of communism, mostly from  the ruling classes of the old Communist Party, and the rest of the population, which  has increasingly  grown apart from  this  dominant social group owing to economic differences. This has led to the great distance that exists between the two—one  that  is more and more difficult to overcome.

The clearest image  of  this  change  is seen in  Moscow, which  has gone from  being a grey city without services to becoming one of  the most expensive in the world. Resulting from the uncontrolled consumerism of Russia’s new rich,     Moscow now features a mixture of  huge Soviet-­‐style buildings and shop windows filled  with all manner of  products.

Despite the new generations never having lived under the  former regime, the legacy  of  the Soviet Union continues to weigh upon them. Much of the population was born in a country  that no longer exists,but  the old traditions and    ideologies remain imbedded in its inhabitants. The population  is treading a path that  is a mix of past and  present in order to find  its place in the new Russia.

About Rosa Rodriguez

Rosa Rodriguez (Madrid, Spain). I studied Art  Education at the Complutense University and Art Photography at the School of Arts and Design, both in Madrid. The photography that I  do stems from  my  own  experience. I  describe my impressions  and    feelings, creating a new reality through images that lie somewhere between  the magical  and  real. I use narration as a means of expression, whereby one  image  complements the  next, making  both  stronger  as  a unit  and  thus conveying the meaning of the narrative.

In 2014,my work has been displayed at the PhotoIreland Festival  – Canon Open Programme, Encontros da Imagen Braga   -­   Photobook  Market (Portugal), and the Brighton Photo Biennial -­ Jubilee Library (United Kingdom). [Official website]
