“City of Shadows” by Alexey Titarenko

Hauntingly beautiful photo series by Alexey Titarenko.

“In the winter of 1991-1992, one cold and gloomy day, I strolled sadly down a street which used to be packed with people, which used to be full of joyful vibrancy and dynamism. I saw people on the verge of insanity, in confusion: They looked like shadows, undernourished and worn out.”

“While waiting outside a subway station, Titarenko noticed how a crowd of people transformed right in front of his very eyes. With the belief that he could make time stand still by changing the camera’s shutter speed, he created this interesting set of photos. He called the series City of Shadows.”
