"One chilly Sunday morning I was strolling through a flea market in Kharkov when I spotted vintage photos: cabinet and visit portraits, lying around on the ground covered with snow and slush flying from people’s feet. I started to buy these photos in a daring attempt to save them. Many of them had an inscription ' Negatives are stored ' or ' Negatives are stored  for further orders' on the back. But collecting somebody else’s photos just for the purpose of keeping them seemed pointless. I decided to give them a new life, a new beginning… may be a life they never had."
