Photographs by Mike O'Brien
Design by Marthe Bijman
Sometimes the photographer just needs to open his eyes to capture the beauty around him. Russia is a country filled with scenes and moments just waiting to be immortalized. Here you can find grandeur and poignancy in classical architecture and breathtaking landscapes, but also in quiet daily life, urban backwaters and utterly remote volcanic valleys. Mike has the opportunity to go where few others can, the ability to see beauty wherever he finds himself, and the skill to capture it in photographs.
