The city of Harbin in north-eastern China was once a thriving, cosmopolitan centre for Russian culture. Harbin’s poshest district, now called Daoli, was once populated by boulevardiers, churches and shops for Russian foods. By 1926, however, the city council came to be dominated by a majority of Chinese tradesmen. At the same time in the 1980s a new order came to China, one which welcomed western (and Russian) culture once it had been converted into commodity form.
A visitor to Harbin will see Russians in fashion advertisements and Russians in hotel bars, Russian writing on the walls and Russian songs played by saxophonists in the street. Once added to your personalized homepage, just edit widget settings to select your desired view. It was founded by Russian colonists in the late 19th century, heyday of the Russian Empire, on the banks of the Sungari River inside the territory of the Chinese Empire.


In truth, the Russians had lost compelling power when their homeland changed into a new nation.
This was logical enough: this city of outcasts, the poor, and the criminal would always have a special resonance for the party. With it came a Harbin with no Russians, but plentiful matryoshka dolls, bottles of vodka and fur hats, as well as grand apartment buildings painted in the hues of St Petersburg and statues of Russian poets.

It is more rare that one settlement transforms into another, that a city turned ruin continues to be inhabited, that the collapsing buildings and boulevards stained by a thousand footsteps, after the apocalypse, host new forms of human life, new memories. A forbiddingly cold location, it was part of the homeland of the Manchurian ethnic group, the founders of the Q’ing dynasty.
The latter was managed by politician and industrialist Count Witte — a testament to the strength of the state. It is perhaps a historical curiosity that the Russian Fascist Party, the first Russian ethnocentric fascist political organisation, was founded in Harbin, where they smashed synagogue windows and hassled Jews staying in the Moderne Hotel through the early 1930s. Harbin entered a period of violent contestation: Chinese warlord Zhang Xueliang took over the China Eastern Railway in 1929, which was followed by a Japanese invasion of Harbin in 1931. But this victory also marked the end of Harbin as home for those who couldn’t fit in in Soviet Russia, both because it was Communist, and because it was decidedly Chinese.
But it was only when the Soviet Union dissolved that the Russians themselves started trickling back, this time as businessmen looking for new markets, as prostitutes, and as the parents of children whose diseases couldn’t be treated in Russian hospitals except at a prohibitive price.
It opens and close to let more or less light in, and also changes the depth of field, or how many different objects can remain in focus in the shot at the same time. The whole area was legally off-limits to ethnic Chinese settlers until late in the 19th century, and remained a largely empty terrain of nomads and, occasionally, bandits and criminals.


The Chinese migration, in contrast, was a population flood inspired by social dysfunction, attesting to the collapse of the Chinese state; these migrants came to Harbin as a port of last resort. Decades rolled by, and the last Russians desperately sought to emigrate to Australia, Israel or wherever would take them. Last is the shutter speed, which controls how much time the camera’s shutter remains open when taking a photo. They wander dejectedly through beer gardens, on their way to trade delegations, or maybe to nightclubs where they are paid to dance.
The existence of Harbin, like that of cities such as Vladivostok or Novisibirsk, represented the penetration of the Russian culture into the heart of the north through technology: in Harbin, before anything else, there was a train station. These decades saw the daily life of the city become increasingly gruesome: when the Japanese took over, they started sweeping Russians and Russian Jews off the street to be used as human subjects in the infamous Unit 731, a covert army chemical and biological weapons research facility which undertook brutal experiments on living victims. The USSR itself turned against Stalin, while in Harbin lovers sat on benches in riverside Stalin Park. A longer shutter opening will let in more light but may also cause blurring if any motion occurs while the photo is being taken.
In 1898 China had granted Russia the right to build a shortcut on the Trans-Siberian Railway across Manchuria, from Chita to Vladivostok. The building of the railway brought engineers, and then refugees, White Russians, smugglers, tricksters and soldiers who shot at random out of the train window at the Asian men they saw trudging through the snow.
