Max Sher's second book Palimpsests is a photographic exploration of post-Soviet built environment looked at from the perspective of the everyday and discarding the exoticizing visual tropes that dominate the narrative about this area. Photographed between 2010 and 2017 in over 70 locations across five post-Soviet countries, it captures the typical and the most mundane elements of urban landscape that could be seen in almost any post-Soviet locality.
