Birthmark on the Map

Birthmark on the Map is a community of citizen journalists — or, more precisely put, photo-journalists — who document life in provincial Russia.

The result of a local project, the portal provides a window into the small cities and smaller villages that have largely been forgotten by Moscow. Birthmark (Rodinki) is a play on words and can mean both “birthmark” and “little home”.
(The BOBs — Deutsche Welle Blog Awards, 2011) Community blog launched in late 2009 as local photoproject documenting daily life of Novosibirsk Region (Western Siberia) now presenting works more with stories from the whole Russia.
