The book Handjob is a non-documentary project, dedicated to a selective part of the Moscow club scene in the 2010s. Each image has a footnote with reference to the location of the shooting (event) or to the description of the object in the frame. In many ways, the book is devoted to the problem of an overabundance of visual information and the crisis in documentary projects, as such, when the message is less important than the visual solution of the frame itself, which becomes a thing in itself, leaving no room for utterance. Book: 240 pages / hardcover / postcards inside. Printing: silk screen printing, risography, digital printing. Edition: 100 copies The book has two cover options: pink or green. Format: A3 spread. Conceptual design: Stepan Lipatov.
