Feeling at Home on Sunny Street includes a set of images I took when I visited a house in one of the villages near Barnaul in Altai region in Russia in June 2015.
The idea behind the sequence of the images of the domestic space and outside the house is to capture the intangible dimensions of a sense of a Russian home and to document the elements that make a home feel Russian.
I deliberately wanted to photograph a Russian home in a non-urban area and to capture things that would appeal to people who would like to explore Russia culture and identity from a less familiar angle.
By taking these images I aimed to illustrate how culture, hospitality, domesticity and warmth can produce an atmosphere of a Russian home.
All images were taken in a house of babushka Valya, who hosted me for 3 days of my stay in Russia. The house is located in Bayunovo Klyuchi village on a Sunny (Solnechnaya Street).
