Hoshino Ai – Sovjet Transport
From Lithuania, Ukraine, and Georgia to Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, photographer Ai Hoshino journeys throughout the former Soviet sphere of influence in northern Eurasia in her quest to document the bygone relics of a vast socialist state. This collection of photographs focuses on abandoned vehicles and other modes of transport that still remain in the former countries of the Soviet Union. These include cable cars, Ferris wheels, automobiles, railroads, airplanes, ships, tanks, trucks, and more. Although they will disappear into oblivion in the not too distant future, Hoshino captures these silent but eloquent inorganics in their final resting places.
