Slava Mogutin Releases New Book: Food Chain

By Sola Agustsson

May 27, 2014

Between the wake of protests of Russia’s anti-gay laws and beginning of US-Russian discord, Slava Mogutin releases his new book Food Chain (published by ITNA Press). Part photography, poetry and memoir, Food Chain fearlessly details his adventures from his early teenage years to the present. Exiled from Russia because of his political activism that the government considered to be “homosexual propaganda,” Mogutin’s work is inspired by themes of displacement, identity and sexuality.

The words and images that pervade the book are raw and unapologetic, starting with an opening quote from a Russian proverb that reads: “If you’re afraid of the wolves, don’t fuck in the woods.” His photographs expose the body while hiding the identity of the person, commenting on the repression of gays in Russia.
