Post-Soviet Visions: Striking Images From Eastern Europe's Rising Generation

Post-Soviet Visions is a collection of photos from Eastern Europe's blossoming art scene.

Long gone are the drab, politically driven and highly censored images from back-in-the-day. Instead, being 'post-Soviet' conjures images of bold innovation and vibrant creativity.

Contributing artists in this series come from countries of the former Eastern Bloc, like Georgia, Germany, Latvia, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. Though they all grew up in different countries, they're united by the fact that they, or they're parents, have all lived under Communism.

This is their creative backlash.

Their imagery no longer deals with the political; instead, the art turns personal. Themes of sexuality, gender and style can be found abundantly throughout the work.

This is a modern world, where borders of East vs. West have long been erased and anything is possible. Post-Soviet Visions is curated by the Calvert 22 foundation. Learn more about the series here
