This book is about friendship and love that we share among the several families for a long time already…

Every year on December 31, we get together to celebrate New Year, have fun and relax. This time, besides a good mood and great food what is traditional for New Year night, there has been cozy log house with a huge stone fireplace, a fairy dresses and costumes, nice photo equipment, and above all - an entire week of winter vacation ahead! Then there was a proposal to arrange photo session to capture this beauty and make portraits, which appeared in this album...

There were thirty pictures selected and divided in between of three major album’s sections – the formal family portraits, kids alone in formal dresses and candid portraits. The all these pictures taken at single night and captured on black-and-white film using the classical medium format photography camera, what contributes to their overall appearance a lot.

The time will pass bringing many changes upon us. However, in that book my friends will withstand it and never change…

The book's poetry and the image captions written in Russian language.
