About the Work

This is the second piece I photographed in Moscow. The building on which it is based was commonly called GUM. It faces the Kremlin and matches it in size. It is a nineteenth-century covered market of small shops converted by decree into one store soon after the Revolution. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union it has returned to housing many independent shops. I used a curved metal construction to carry the photographs of its vast interior.

″I still use the same approach to my work: I get an idea, think of the title and then make the work. So not much has changed since 1964″
