The Victory Day

On May 9th of every year, Victory Day is celebrated in the countries that were part of the Soviet Union, a commemoration of the victory over Nazi Germany in the Second World War.The war was one of the stands used to generate a genuine patriotic pride among the soviet citizens. After their collapse, countries like Estonia, Georgia, Lithuania, Ukraine or Belarus have been generating their own identity, frequently under a conductive thread marked by Russian economic and political dominance.This photographic project is a journey through their urban landscapes and their main characters, between that common patriotic pride, and the rupture. Between the inherited elements and the construction of the new ones.
