Dreaming Walls

Lens Culture... Dreaming Walls - photographs by Lucia Ganieva. "...In a small, remote village in the Udmurt Republic of Russia, photographer Lucia Ganieva discovered a wonderful anomaly in home decoration — the interiors of practically every home in the village feature room-size photographic murals of 'exotic' scenes, which symbolize the distant places that the home-dwellers will never visit, except in their dreams.
The result, from an outsider's perspective, is a riot of visual clutter. The photomurals are often juxtaposed against the equally jarring colors, patterns and textures of plush sofa blankets and other home decorations." More... Works by Lucia Ganieva at her personal site.
