Dreaming Walls

This really makes my heart feel heavy. Photographer Lucia Ganieva discovered that in a rural village in the Udmurt Republic of Russia, the interiors of almost every single home has room sized photographic murals of exotic places that the home-dwellers feel they will never get to experience, except only in their dreams. The Udmurt people are strongly connected to nature and they treasure these over-sized photographic murals and are proud to show them off. I love the juxtaposition between these intense nature scenes and the everyday furniture, textures, fabrics and colors of an ordinary well-lived home. Pretty touching story and exceptionally beautiful photographs. Take a second and see more here.
