I Beg You to Hear Me!

I Beg You to Hear Me!  is a body of works and a limited edition publication based on the lives and works of Russian writers active during the 1920s and 1930s.

Sixteen storyboards, a collection of pocket-size portraits complemented by fictional autobiographies attempt to ‘translate’ the voices of individual writers or those of a literary group.

‘This project has evolved over a number of years – words and visuals are the result of a process of accumulation. These faces have been living with us for a long time, like distant relatives. (Francesca Ricci, 2014).
