The April Theses on BJP

A Portfolio from The April Theses is on the British Journal of Photography December Issue - REVOLUTION. 

"Issue #7866" begins all the way back in 1917 with Moscow-based Italian photographer David Monteleone’s new book The April Theses, an immersive retracing of Lenin’s journey back to Russia from political exile in Zürich. Uncovering notes, bills and letters enabled the photographer to re-imagine a near step-by-step route, going so far as to dress in a suit similar to one Lenin might have worn, growing his beard, and adopting his stance to assume his role, in photographs taken in places Lenin would have travelled through.
