The Soviet dream is over. Igor Mukhin is 30 years old, born in Moscow in 1961, he never left his hometown. Gorbachev's reforms and the collapse of the USSR liberated photography from its documentary and propagandist vocation. The improvisation starts again. In this turbulent, unstable and uncertain background, Mukhin explores the city like the cat Behemoth. He is very tall, and nobody notice him. He doesn't travel, he's at home and he photographs his life.
