frederic chaubin / soviet oddness

last month pingmag (which is rapidly becoming one of my favourite sites) ran a nice interview with this guy frederic chaubin which discussed some photos he’s taken of bizarre soviet architecture. they’re very cool photos.. but i’ve not been able to really find out anything more about him or (more importantly), the locations. so consider this a request.. please leave a comment if you know where to find more of the same. til then, i’ll make do with what i’ve got.
