Bolshaia Volga is a study of a great Russian river. Once praised in fairy tales and paintings, this river nourished Russian people for multiple generations. Nowadays, parts of the area have been economically less fortunate. Once rich, town after town suffers from an increasingly grey appearance. Russian photographer Dennis Baburov heard stories about the former importance of the river. Greatly interested, his mission became to visualize the history of the Volga.
