Brighter Than Us

'the revival of nostalgic attitudes towards the Soviet era'

Anastasija Labekina

The practical study "Better Than Us" is visually exploring the relationship between the revival of nostalgic attitudes towards the Soviet era and visual identities of the young creative generation. The practice is addressed as an editorial spread, utilising fashion photography, graphic design and typographic considerations. While exploring the contemporary visual aesthetic trends, the project also communicates an acute Eastern European political climate.
