After Socialism

Album created by Prof Stéphane A. DUDOIGNON

The photographs exposed in this album have been taken during summer fieldworks in different regions of Tajikistan between 2004 and 2011. I was trying to understand how post-Soviet societies adjust their relationship to power, authority, interpersonal relations and the collective past – notably through the new cult of Muslim saints active during the Soviet era, and through the role played in this cult by different socioeconomic actors.
