Tolyatti is a visual and scientific exploration into society and common spaces in contemporary post-Soviet cities. This work, in particular, is about the city Tolyatti. Tolyatti is the largest Soviet industrial planned city and the most relevant example of a mono-industrial town in contemporary Russia. The largest district of the city, Avtozavodskiy rajon, was built starting from the late 1960s following the establishment of AvtoVAZ, the largest automobile manufacturer in the USSR, in order to accommodate factory workers from all Soviet republics.
The photographs are accompanied by a bilingual text from urbanist Guido Sechi.
