    As an artist I love your shots Harry, they are really wonderful. But as a Russian I cannot accept a bit of irony and arrogance that I can feel in SOME of your commentaries. You sound like capitalism is the greatest ever thing (which is actually not) Well, up to you to think so… Nevertheless, the truth is that for Russia capitalism DOES NOT work and will never do, as well as *naked* materialism does not. The core of this country is SPIRIT and always was. And not EVERYBODY *wants to consume*…

    Just our impressions are not enough to claim anything. Should be experience instead. It is impossible to get to know any country in just a few weeks, especially such complex, mysterious and unique country like Russia. To *feel* it the one should be living here quite long time. So please, dont hurry to make conclusions.

    Still thank you very much for the nice exhibition of true art. Best of luck :)

    (HK) Lucy, thanks for your commentaries, but they assume some wrong things. First of all I am not ‘Western People’, that is generalizing. Secondly, if you have read my commentaries well, you would know that I hate capitalism and consumerism. I just do not think that communism worked out very well, either, especially as nw it is reulting in the same consumerism.

More Cathedral domes in the Kremlin

The story behind "More Cathedral domes in the Kremlin"

One of our clients on the Mt Elbrus expedition who grew up in Australia in the sixties, was shocked at first by the directness and sometimes rudeness of the people in Russia. But then he warmed up to them and vice versa and later he told me that he felt ‘cheated’ by all the schools and teachers and media that only had repeatedly told him that Russia was the great aggressor and filled with bad people.

For now this image of the shiny Kremlin domes is the last one in the Russian series. Though it is big, the rest of the Planet is even bigger and is waiting for Exposure! I hope that it has opened some minds and some eyes. Russia is not bad or good, there are just bad and good people, like anywhere else.
