The history of Russia through the eyes of the reenactors by Svetlana Makoveeva

Fourteen reenactors of seven epochs of Russian history – about the spirit of the past and the present

Russian photographer Svetlana Makoveeva has started a project that brings together 14 of the historical characters that were major parts of Russian history. From the 9th century warriors and maidens all the way to WW2 comrades and comradettes.

Reconstructors tell what motivates they have to turn to the past, how they feel themselves in modern Russia and how would they like to live in the era they recreate. h/t:(theguardian)
