2 Comments

Magnum photographer Jonas Bendiksen spent seven years journeying through the former Soviet Union and documenting the lives of the people there. Along the way, he met scrap metal scavengers who search the landscape for fallen rockets in order to sell the materials. One of his photos of these people became one of Bendiksen’s most famous works.

In the 2-minute video above, Bendiksen briefly shares the story behind his iconic shot. You can purchase this photo in poster or book form over in the Magnum store.
