Free Riders Journey From Moscow to St. Petersburg

Young people go from Moscow to St. Petersburg and back by electric trains. They have to change 4 times. All the way takes about 16 hours. They do not buy tickets. They either manage to escape controllers, or move from one car to another, or

The landscape left by the USSR. Atmosphere, streets, faces, colors, clothes and things of that time, when the Soviet Empire vanished so fast but all its material
attributes were still around. The alternative future gave only hints: brights signs, lines in the subway, bottled beer that was not a hard-to-get thing anymore... These photos are so different from what we see everyday in the varicoloured flow of news of the XXI century so it was impossible to miss.
