"Wonderland" by Jason Eskenazi

March 15, 2014

Jason Eskenazi’s ‘Wonderland’ is a story and documentation of Russia in the 90’s. The book is a fairytale, narrative remnants of a utopian dream lost, and an amazing documentation of a failing nation. These images show violence, strange domestic scenes, destruction of cities, and upper class social circles. Eskenazi’s book is comprehensive of a tragic time in Russia’s history with an inventive narrative arch, which makes it more than just documentation; he is empathetic and thoughtful in this book production.
