Publisher's presentation :

"The Solovki Islands in northwest Russia are known for their monastery, but also for having the first camp of what would become the Gulag. In this decor of extremes, the photographer Jean-Luc Bertini and writer Olivier Rolin have turned their attention to the camp library, now long gone. Their search constitutes a slow exploration of this region where ghosts of the past cross paths with the disappointed hopes of contemporary Russia."

Texts in French only.
