Blokadnitsy Project

Page 1 of 1

“The Blokadnitsy Project,” an exhibit by Jill Bough, presents photographs of women who survived the Siege of Leningrad. Each photo collage (of which only a detail appears here) is framed with artifacts from the women's apartments and a statement, like this one by Emma: "The stress we felt was not just about the war. It was the fact that we were prisoners."

Haunted by the siege
