Five years ago my husband got an offer to work for Google in Zürich, Switzerland. Neither me nor my husband spoke German or ever lived outside of Russia. We rented an apartment on the top floor at Zwinglistrasse 17, twenty minutes walk from the Google office. I had a limited residence permit and couldn’t work for two years. So I stayed at home. We bought curtains, a table and some glasses. We met my husband’s new colleagues, Google employees, and their wives, Google wives. Watch a dummy book preview on Vimeo 2012 - in progress
In 2012 I’ve started a very personal photographic diary about my wish to have a child and trying to convince my husband to experience the parenthood.
The book “How I tried to convince my husband to have children” is built around the creative dialogue of a woman with her husband pro- and contra- of having children.
