More than 1000 years of cultural history in eastern Europe. The old Russia still exists in old castles and fortresses, in monasteries and churches - and in peoples memories.
In breathtaking aerial photographs, the series shows the cities of Old Russia: St. Petersburg, Veliky Novgorod, the cities of the Golden Ring and Kiev. Each part is a visual celebration in honor of a lifestyle that is still strongly influenced by regional charm, the discomfort of nature and the seasons. The camera explores the art and ornaments of the most beautiful buildings of Old Russia, which were installed centuries ago and far on top, outside the sight of humans, only for the glory of God.
