About the Author

Klavdij Sluban: Klavdij Sluban is an established photographer of Slovenian origin based in Paris. Sluban is known for his extended pieces of work and in particular for his work with young offenders in prison. This started in 1995, when he created a photography workshop for teenagers in the Juvenile Detention Centre south of Paris. Henri Cartier-Bresson attended several times a year throughout the project, as did photographers William Klein and Marc Riboud. In 2000, Klavdij created a photographic workshop in Slovenia, in the only national prison for teenagers. He also worked with young prisoners in the former Soviet-Union (Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova, Latvia), on similar photographic projects. Klavdij Sluban’s photographs have been exhibited widely including the Museum of Photography, Helsinki; Metropolitan Museum of Photography, Tokyo; Museum of Modern Art, Canton, China; Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris; and Centre Pompidou / Beaubourg, Paris. He has published several books and is included in the well-known Photo Poche series which features the world’s leading photographers. He was winner of the Leica Medal of Excellence in 2004 and the Prix Niépce in 2000.

Erri De Luca: Erri De Luca is one of Italy's leading writers and the winner of several literary awards in both Italy and France. He is author of several novels, including the international best seller "God's Mountain" and "Sea of Memory".

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
Excellent collection of black and white photographs of Eastern-bloc nations by a Slovenian photographer. Dense, grey, black, shadowy photographs--if one wants to read these photographs politically, and it's hard not to, one would have to say that Sluban presents former (and current--China is included) communist countries as utterly impoverished, materially and spiritually. Spiritually, even those photographs showing humans seem silent, uncommunicative, an Eastern version of Edward Hopper spread across the vast terrain of Eurasia. But this isn't photojournalism, and one can still say that, whatever their subject matter, Sluban's photographs are well-composed, beautiful, stark, and moody.
