Jason Guilbeau photographed relics of the Soviet era using Google Street View initially to map these strange leftovers of a collapsed empire. Some of the designs the french photographer captured simply defy explanation and others are equally quite obvious. There is a real sense that they may simply disappear unless documented.
‘From remote rural roadsides to densely populated cities, the photographs reveal traces of history in plain sight: a Brutalist hammer and sickle stands in a remote field; a jet fighter is anchored to the ground by its concrete exhaust plume; a skeletal tractor sits on a cast-iron platform; a village sign resembles a Constructivist sculpture. Passers-by seem oblivious to these objects’.
