Lyudmila and Natasha

Russian Lives


The photojournalist Misha Friedman is renowned for his efforts to capture life in contemporary Russia, documenting subjects as varied as political corruption, the dangers of coal mining, the tuberculosis epidemic, and the Bolshoi Ballet. In publications ranging from the New York Times, the Washington Post, Time, and the New Yorker, Friedman’s grimly evocative black-and-white images-“intimate, behind-the-scenes photos” (Time)-have been credited with capturing moments of intense pathos, bleak existence, and human dignity. He has received multiple international awards for his “unflinching” lens and his intrepid reporting.

Ellie and the Truth about the Tooth Fairy

“There’s no way the Tooth Fairy is real. It just doesn’t make sense,” states Ellie. So, she sets out to prove this to be the case, armed with a tiny tooth and a thirst for the truth. Convinced that the grown-ups are the ones replacing the teeth with money, she hides her tooth and tells nobody-except her best friend and her eavesdropping…

For his new collection of photographs, Lyudmila and Natasha, Friedman trains his lens on a gay couple living on Saint Petersburg, offering a series of intimate snapshots of their relationship as it unfolds over the course of a year. Faced with a hostile political climate, financial difficulties, and often unstable living arrangements, the subjects of this stunning book reveal the possibilities for love in the most uncertain of times. With the fabled city of Saint Petersburg as its backdrop, Lyudmila and Natasha powerfully evokes both a vital place and the people who call it home.

Lyudmila and Natasha was designed by Emerson, Wajdowicz Studios (EWS).
