Dreams from a Northern Country

1 / 15

In this body of work, Ilicak documents the daily lives of Russian people in the context of their social environment using candid and portrait photography techniques. Over the past years, Ilicak has visited Russia extensively and travelled from St. Petersburg up to Makarovo, Bashkortostan, the first ethnic autonomy of Russia located between the Volga River and the Ural Mountains, to collect visuals for his personal project: Dreams from a Northern Country. Dreams from a Northern Country showcases the largest country's human landscapes; with their dreams and wishes, their religion and hard-to-reach hopes. While recording the inner prayers of the people, Ilicak introduces to the viewer a nation who doesn't lose its hope.
