George Greenhill

The Insider George Greenhill says:

"Paulina Korobkiewicz’s photography explores the aesthetics of Post-Soviet culture. The architectural features attributed to communism - its monumentality, homogeneity and uniformity, began to change as a result of its collapse in 1989. Korobkiewicz captures the impact of this change on the urban environment. "
