    A place for reflection. 2016.


    ( + )

    This quite ordinary fishing seat caught my eye accidentally. At the moment I felt that I did not think it attracted. The eye was caught by silent  dialogue between this structure designed for privacy according to its purpose and the smooth surface of the lake, the lush floodplain vegetation,  the reflections in the water. The unity of these elements created a bright harmony fulfilled by metaphors and meanings.

    The triumph of peace and tranquility in the summer Ukrainian nature – clouds reflecting in a mirror of water of a small river, among the lush green foliage of the coastal forests.
