A series of photos was taken during my numerous trips to Finland. This country is a special place for me, where I fill in my emotional losses. Here I always find peace of mind, a sense of respect for the previous generations, a sense of justice and concern for the heritage.

I grew up in a small border town of Vyborg, which belonged to the Finns before the Second World War. The architecture of my native city is identical to Helsinki. But there is one difference. Without proper repair and maintenance, historic buildings, architectural monuments and urban areas of Vyborg are destroyed. That is why each trip to Finland is a way to get into an alternative history to see what my hometown and its surroundings could look like. And these photos are a collective image of a place that enchants with its tranquility and natural comfort. The collective image of the place where I would like to live.
