This friday we get stucked at the Moscow airport. We had to stay the whole night in cause of a thunderstorm. I know this airport from all my flight to Russia pretty well, but it was a strange calm feeling to see this place at night. It was great to sneak around and discover this otherwise so crowded halls.

THE MAKING OF ‘VALKENVANIA’
…is, that today is the 8th of May. A remembrance day about the victory about the fascist Germany and the end of the war 70 year ago.
On that day I took the photos about ‘Valkenvania’ we were on the way to a remote orphanage in the Tverskaja Oblast. Our idea was to offer some help, to give kids attention and love and to show how easy it is to change things with your own two hands.
We are doing that now for years. We are: some hearty russian friends and me who love to give some perspective to young kids living in orphanages.
My russian friends love their country and they are proud of it, like we all do, and it’s such a great feeling to do all this things now united hand in hand.
Vita & Serge, you are real friends to me and you show me that there are no borders between us. Thank you for that!!! Especially on that day, the 8th of May (of course 9th). Thanks for your friendship… …let’s rock the world.

All over the world you find places which have a special spell that fascinates you. I don’t speak about the nice and shiny places. I speak about places which are so different and powerful compare to that what you used to, that you feel a shiver, joy and the fascination of this particular beauty at the same time.
