A Portrait of the Russian Space Age.
Photographs by Adam Bartos. Text by Svetlana Boym.
Princeton Architectural Press,
176 pp., 94 color illustrations, 11x9½".
"The words 'beginning of the Space Age' were not spoken by any of us. There were the contribution of journalists. In the evenings, all of us poured out onto the street, away from the light sources, and awaited the appearance of the quickly moving, pale asterisk that we had thrown into the sky."-Svyatoslav S. Lavrov. Bartos' subtle yet riveting color photographs re-create that childish excitement and fascination associated with the space programs of the mid-20th century. This is not a sweeping overview but rather an intimate gaze.
