Presentation by IIKKI Books:
"Dmitri Markov is a russian documentary photographer, social worker, volunteer and journalist from Pskov. His only camera is an iPhone, with a sharp eye he documents life in the ex-URSS without any artifice. His works are simply some everyday life’s scenes with a particular sense of beauty and a wonderful talent. He has been laureate from many international competitions. Cut Off is his second book.
« I like traveling around the country and taking pictures of ordinary lives of ordinary people. It is sad to hear people say that I capture the seamy side. I don’t see anything horrible in these pictures of mine. They are not just “social photography”, as many people see them, they are my personal encounters and scenes. Every added picture is like another chapter in my own history. And when I get asked why I go after “life’s unpleasant side”, I reply: “Because I’m part of it.” »"

However, each book includes a code that allows to listen online to the full version of the music composed for the project. For Cut Off, the music was composed by Aries Mond.

He collects almost obsessively scraps of reality which are always different, but they can finally find an analogy and eventually become a series of images. It ‘s a picaresque concept of photography,...
