Welcome to my town oh
Welcome to my country
So good to have you around oh
Welcome to my sound oh
Welcome to my family
To the darkness, the devil and things no man should find
Look Up, Can you see the message, the message that it spreads now,
Look Up, Can you see the light how it’s shining over our head now
Light might keep you in the distance
And the light can guide you and the light
Can show you what you’re missing right now”
“For millions of years flowers have been producing thorns. For millions of years sheep have been eating them all the same. And it’s not serious, trying to understand why flowers go to such trouble to produce thorns that are good for nothing? It’s not important, the war between the sheep and the flowers? It’s no more serious and more important than the numbers that fat red gentleman is adding up? Suppose I happen to know a unique flower, one that exists nowhere in the world except on my planet, one that a little sheep can wipe out in a single bite one morning, just like that, without even realizing what he’d doing – that isn’t important? If someone loves a flower of which just one example exists among all the millions and millions of stars, that’s enough to make him happy when he looks at the stars. He tells himself ‘My flower’s up there somewhere…’ But if the sheep eats the flower, then for him it’s as if, suddenly, all the stars went out. And that isn’t important?”
I was ask to do a fashion shoot for the new DRYKORN fall/winter collection 2019/20. Yes of course. With pleasure. To enter new territory… …and the world of posing. But, hey, why these poses seems so familiar for me even here in Russia in ‘real life’… 🙂
Natasha, psychoanalyst, practices in Tver and Moscow/Russia, was always fascinated by portraits where features of a person captured on photos.
…and so we tried… ..no concept, no rules… …we just let go… …and danced…
Natasha, thank you for that dance. 🙂
Valeriya, my co-worker friend. Her first photo shoot.
Dear Lera, thank you for this delightful photo shooting. It was wonderful to work with you. 🙂
Khatuna / ხათუნა, or Khatya like we call her, has the meaning ‘lady’ (in persian).
I think I remember that Khatya told us that the georgian meaning is something like ‘fate’….
….however it is… …I know that this wonderful lady and her partner (our friend Bonya) will take fate in their own hand! … and they will be succeed in all respects.
Hey, you both… …long may you run… …and stay forever young.
please see here at JETAMELE how Andrea has seen Khatya.
This is Kristina from Moscow. Smart, intelligent and charming. A really nice person. Purser at AEROFLOT airlines.
When I was a little boy I hated it to get my hairs cut, because my and my mom’s idea about a good haircut varies… …a lot! Over the years I emancipate my ideas from those of my mom’s, but my hairs seems to do the same with me. I was pretty fast a bald person.
So, now you will think that I poor guy will never experience the spell of a beauty salon. – No no no, not with me! Not on POINT BLANK! So I dared it, stepped into the beauty salon ‘CARINA’, this hidden world for me for so long… …and see what I found out: The people love it! They have fun! They relax! Incredible! – And so I made my peace with this place.
