Frank Herfort is fascinated by the uniquely shaped buildings that have seemed to sprout from the ground since the end of the Soviet era. The German photographer has journeyed to the most remote areas of the former Soviet Union. After the collapse of the regime, a strangely pompous architectural style sprung up throughout the new republic.

It conflates the aesthetics of monumental Soviet architecture with the Western language of form seen in the twentieth century. A fine selection of the 100 best photographs of these eye-catching structures are published in his book "Imperial Pomp - Post Soviet High-Rise"
