The Day After Yesterday



For her series The Day After Yesterday (TDAY), Moscow-based photographer Natalia Pokrovskaya tries to show how the past is still part of the present - in other words: how today is the day after yesterday. She did this by asking people from former Soviet countries to show objects that are typical of the time they live in now. Some brought gummy bears, others mobile devices, and in some photos we just see oil or light. By photographing all these different objects and phenomena, it became clear that, while during Soviet times the future was a shared vision, today there are many different ideas of what the present looks like.
