    About The Work

    This double-plate photograph depicts the ruins of a bridge that once ran along the Siberian railroad, part of a body of work inspired by the work of Russian poet Joseph Brodsky, who spent seven years in a Siberian labor camp before defecting to the United States in 1972. Partially submerged in the snow, the dilapidated construction of wood and metal shown in the image marks the site of a mass grave interring prisoners who died during the railroad's construction. The title of the photograph refers to the estimated number of people buried in the grave. Almond was a voracious railroad enthusiast in his teenage years; here, the railroad becomes a subject of eerie beauty and unimaginable horror.
