Дом на Набережной, The House on the Embankment, across the river from the Kremlin. Built 1928 - 1931 to house Communist party apparatchiks and other hacks, during the purges of the 1930s hundreds of its residents were taken away.

'Bread' or 'fruit' vans would arrive, usually at night, to drag whole families off to be shot or to the Gulag camps. Today the house has some of Moscow's most expensive properties.

Shot in Moscow, September 2009 - January 2010.
