This product is currently sold out.
Igor Chepikov is an artist born in Moscow who lives in Cologne for more than 20 years and works as an architect, painter and photographer. "Heldenstadt" reveals a love-hate relationship with the source he comes from, spelled M.O.C.K.B.A. A leitmotif in grey, continuing all the way, through the book, seeming to say: "Do Not Pass". WHITE PRESS experimented with various black and white printing methods. Finally we ended up with a system that is (referring to manufacturer) "not made for halftone reproduction". We RIPed our own and here it is: Printed on paper we choose as an artistic approach to newspaper appearance. Once more: documentary as art. Helge Schlaghecke, White Press
