There was some hype sorrounding the Rodchenko School for Photography's table at the ViennaPhotoBookFestival 2013. Igor's book took me by storm - a raw, anarchic and intensive shooting of a group of young people in Russia. You feel the hangovers, you're inside the room drinking with them, standing around the fire staring in the night, having sex in the kitchen, on the floor. We follow the group over two days - then a new day dawns, streets are cleaned, Igor(?) lying in a puddle - that's it, breathless at the end of a great book!
