Exploring ruins is always a dangerous act which could cost your life, however some ruins are not only dangerous because of the ruined object. The most brave among the urban explorers will cross countless kilometers, to reach the areas of the old iron curtain and to fight with the excessive bureaucracy, military paranoia and freezing icy winds of the East to find the old giant ghosts from an socialist empire. Rebecca Litchfield is one of those explorers, she just couldn’t resist the call of the haunting Soviet ghosts calling her for a stay. She has risked radiation exposure, endured arrest and interrogation, and was also accused of espionage while taking the stunning photography in Soviet Ghosts. Join her on an adventure through the ruins of soviet bloc, never before seen by western eyes.

The emotional effect her photos give you will keep you coming back for more, while her articles will offer you an in-depth analysis of the historical context. Discover the story of the rise and fall of the USSR, the empire whose ghost continues to haunt Europe even today…
