'My chief hope for this book is that it may help to make others think of Russia, not as an abstraction, not as a unit, but as a very large number of very interesting human beings, most of them lovable.' - 'In a Russian Village' Charles Roden Buxton, Labour Publishing Company, London 1922 - 'Russian Types & Scenes' is a companion volume to 'Wooden Churches - Travelling in the Russian North'. Photographing the churches was exciting and exhilarating but it was also frustrating. My camera was attached to a tripod. I faithfully gave my attention to the tripod and its camera, adjusting the position, the level, the height, the framing, the focus, the shutter speed and the aperture while brushing away snow, rain and mosquitoes from the lens. I knew that if I was to move away for a moment the sun would burst through the clouds; a dog, a cow, a horse or a wonderfully exotic Russian would hove into frame. Meanwhile all around me extraordinary everyday things were happening...' Along side the photographs of Richard Davies, there are texts by the Moscow architectural historian Alexander Mozhaev, together with the insights of writers, artists and poets.
