Presentation by the artist:

"The book is built on two photographic archives – mine (photographs of my friends made between 2011-2013) - and photographer Tatyana Soldatova’s archive (photographs of her friends made in 1980s) that I happened to see by chance and compare with mine. This comparison brought out a large number of identical shots taken during such different epochs in Russia. The project has become a reflection about time, a link between past and present, mirroring and similarity of lives of total strangers.

The first dummy was designed during the ISSP 2013 (Latvia), under the direction of Teun van der Heijden.

The book is self-made and published in a limited edition of 15 copies, has a complex system of pages of different sizes and spreads, on tactile paper. I do everything myself - printing, cutting, folding, glueing, binding.

Did we ever meet? won the "Rock your dummy!" contest at Le Photobook Fest in Paris in 2013 and has been since exhibited around Russia and Europe."

We are offering the copy No. 2 / 15.

Please note that this complex book (gatefold pages, inserts, cutouts, etc.) is completely hand-made and may have traces or imperfections in connection with the production process.

This book has been designed to slowly reveal the location, the story, and its ending, to the viewer in a cinematographic manner. Time is the key element here...
