The Lost Bloc is a fascinating photographic adventure through formerly—or, in some cases, currently—socialist countries that are still united by their communist past and enriched with local traditions, customs, and religions. Inspired by nostalgia and personal experience, photographer Liu Yuan visited the thirty-five countries that used to belong to the Soviet Union’s Eastern Bloc and skillfully depicts new life in these rapidly changing and culturally and economically diverse locations. Liu Yuan’s groundbreaking photographic exploration invites readers to reevaluate communism’s past and present and its impact on the lives of everyday citizens in these countries.
 
Featuring more than 220 stunning photographs, The Lost Bloc introduces a significant voice in Chinese art to an international market. In partnership with Intron International Cultural Development, the Unicorn Chinese Artists series features leading Chinese contemporary artists whose works are not yet well known enough outside China.
