SAINT PETERSBURG (Road to Petergof + Neva river) book in progress / 2019
These two projects are in fact closely linked. They are about the St. Petersburg and at the same time about the things that I care in my
homeland. One project complements the another one.
The road and the river - is a way which I go. Only in ''Road to Petergof'' I feel myself as an observer and contemplate 300 year
history of my city. In the ''Neva river'' I am emotionally worried about the modern relationship between the nature and people.
Thanks to Neva river the St. Petersburg was founded. For builders of cities nature has always been a 'clean sheet'. Its
resources were used at the expense of its own gradual extermination. In the texts on the history of cities a nature usually serves as an
inert background for the heroic conquest.
