Kyiv

I find it difficult to photograph Kyiv. When I don't have my camera with me, I can see everything partly as it is and partly as I imagine it. Everything has a memory - and often more than just one - attached to it. Every building, every backyard. But with my camera, I'm forced to see it all as it really is - and all of a sudden, I realize that way too many things would be missing from the photos... and quite a lot of what I'd normally ignore would show up... The tacky plastic windows or air conditioners, for example.

This building here has so far seemed the most appealing and the most enigmatic to me - despite the fact that I've spent most of my life living almost next to it; despite its monumental mostrosity; despite that star on top of it and despite that huge cell phone in front of it (#1)... It's a residential building, but there's also a movie theater in it - called "Friendship" - Kinoteatr "Druzhba"...
