Man of Iron is a photographic work about Stalin’s grandson, that investigates

the visual language of propaganda by means of a man that is the spitting image

of the iconic image of Josef Stalin; Stalin's grandson.

Stalin’s grandson, Yevgeni Jugashivili does not only look like Stalin,

but he adores him too, allthough he never met him and Stalin sacrificed

his own son, Jugashvili's father, without pity in the Second World War.
