Day of the Trinity, Tereben


In a 2007 interview with PopPhoto, photographer Andrew Moore spoke of his (then recent) work in Russia:

In the case of Russia, I was quite familiar with both its history and culture before I arrived the first time, but I hadn't yet linked that knowledge to the more intimate understanding one gathers on the ground and in person. There is an amazing story of the poet Anna Akhmatova, standing in a line of women outside a prison during the Stalinist purges, all of them waiting in the remote hope of possibly seeing their jailed husbands. The women beside her knew she was a famous poet, and one whispered to her: "Remember this for us." Perhaps more than any other country, Russia is a place where history weighs mightily, and every individual's memory is laden, if not burdened, with the past. So I would say that despite what I knew of the country's history before I went, the most crucial and enlightening ideas were gathered from the stories people
told me.
