I’ve come to Bolshaya Polyanka 30 (“Polyanka” metro station), to take photos of a new work of Zoom. The artist painted an Alien as a part of the “Please, be kinder” series. It’s painted on the same wall, where was his other work with comrade Saakhov at McDonald’s. This is the 30th Zoom’s work that I’ve taken photos of.
The memory march took place yesterday. The route passed from Strastnoy boulevard to Akademika Saharova prospect. Two columns were moving along the road, one on each side of the boulevard. There were a lot of people, more than the previous year. Inspection at security frames was not too strict, the police was really polite and friendly.
I don’t know why, but all the photographers moved to the right column, practically ignoring the left one. The columns started moving at 14:00, just as it had been planned.
1. Everything is ready for the march beginning
Former N.G.Grigoryev’s apartment house is decorated with a bas-relief of the Lorelei, a river fairy, a character of German national legends and poetry, concerned with a Lurlei cliff on Rhine. This house was built at Pyatnitskaya street at the beginning of the 20th century.
The knight at Gusyatnikov lane, Moscow.
1. The knight is placed on the former M.O. Epstein’s apartment house that had been rebuilt in pseudo Gothic style in 1912. This monument is a most known work of the architect V.E.Dubovsky.
1. Pancake festival is in full swing. The weather is not really festive, but at VDNKh everything is ready for the celebration. Volunteers have prepared tents, organized hayricks for children, turned on the electric pancake-cookers.
The thing that everyone likes about the beauty contests is a swimsuit defile. Some photos from “Moscow Miss Beauty 2016” contest.
Tchaikovsky, Khachaturian and Rostropovich.
I don’t really like when the art is mixed with politics and I never photograph such works. But I’ve made an exception for Zoom. This is his new work that appeared at “Polyanka” in Moscow the other day.
Stalin is a long and tedious subject for discussion and, unfortunately, the one, which cannot be discussed adequately. Anger, abuse, threats and insults show up in the discussion immediately. People acting like this, remind zombies or robots, having a single program.
