ECHOES OF THE COLLAPSE | Photographer: Sergei Isaenko | PHOTOGRAPHERS |

"In August 1991, while living in Vladikavkaz, Russia, my family watched on an old television screen as the tanks rolled over the Red Square in what is now known as the “August Coup”, a civil action to take over the government.

As the Iron Curtain fell, a mass migration of refuges spread all over the world from under the dying carcass of the Soviet monster in search of better life. These people including my family are the Echoes of the Collapse."- Sergei Isaenko
