Russian Lives

By Misha Friedman

“Misha Friedman’s soulful collection of gorgeous portraits and fly-on-the-wall reportage pulls you in slowly, invites you to linger, and leaves you dying of curiosity to know more about these two women in love, living in a perplexing country where even the most banal public display of being themselves—living, loving, fighting, splitting up, kissing and making up—now means flouting the law.”—Joseph Huff-Hannon, co-editor, Gay Propaganda: Russian Love Stories

Misha Friedman is an award-winning documentary photographer who has worked for various NGOs, including Médecins Sans Frontières, in Uganda, Nigeria, India, and Darfur. His photographs have appeared in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and the New Yorker, among other publications. He lives in New York City.
