Photographs by Davide Monteleone.
Dewi Lewis Publishing, 2012. 128 pp., 65 color illustrations, 8½x6¾".
Red Thistle, the 2011 winner of The European Publishers Award for Photography, is a powerful and fascinating exploration of the important but relatively unknown region of the Northern Caucasus and its people. It lies between the Black and Caspian Seas and is within European Russia. Wars have been fought here for centuries – the most recent in Chechnya. Monteleone examines the stubborn, rebellious culture of this region, which although part of Russia, differs in the ethnicity, religion and social customs of its inhabitants.
‘If you shoot in the Caucasus, the echo will be heard for centuries,’ says an old proverb from the region.
