Book Description

8 Oct 2009
Following the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Soviet Empire and the military system at its core began to crumble. Lusito has travelled throughout the former Soviet Union, from East Germany to Mongolia, Poland and Kazakhstan to photogrpah its former military bases, many of which have been simply abandoned. He discovered everything - from gas masks to propaganda and personal photographs. But it is the buildings themselves that are the most resonant symbols of a once-powerful Empire.

5.0 out of 5 stars A quite amazing pilgrimmage 1 Nov 2010
By Urbex0r
I really enjoyed Eric's book, there were a wide variety of photographs from the Soviet bases across Europe and Asia. It is quite simply an amazing pilgrimmage and a journey to these bases to obtain the photographs, particularly those in Kazakhstan and Mongolia. The collection of items found on site is fascinating and the stories about the breakdown of the Soviet Union adds a lot of context, bringing the locations to life.

I'd like to hear a little more about the journeys that led to the bases, but as the book is, it's an excellent account of the days of the fading bases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where did they go to? 28 Dec 2012
By Smitty Werbenjaegermanjensen (real name) TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Eric Lusitos book has been in my wish list for ages, staying there until I finally got hold of a copy at a decent price. £80 for a book that was originally £30 was off my radar, although......

Was it worth the wait? Yes.

Was I excited when I first opened it? No. I was distinctly underwhelmed.

However.............this book is a real grower. The images seep into the conciousness and kick start trains of thought. Where did the folk who worked in these places go? How many where there? Did they just lock the door on the way out and never bother coming back? How much mind control were the Soviets actually using in everyday life? Was all original thought to be supressed? Did they all really believe the propaganda?

.....and so on. Stunning, powerful and impressively printed book. All of the images were taken on a large format camera and it shows in the details. Worth getting when it enters your price bracket.
