when you meet someone whose work touches you deeply, and seems to be somewhat in a dialogue with your own work - you know you're in for something big. while in saint petersburg earlier this winter i've spent all my time with eugene petrushanskiy - fell in love with his photographs at first sight some time ago.
he asked me to put my own camera away, and stand in front of his instead. those pictures tell a beautiful story which is important to both of us, so we decided to share it, and publish something together.
this is the first part of 'love diaries' with eugene. he took the portraits, i photographed everything else.
you can see the second part here: vimeo.com/35427612
