Taganrog, Russia
Taganrog is an old small town by the sea, best known as the birthplace of the famous Russian writer Anton Chekhov. I visited the city for the first time in late fall. Then again in October. I remembered it as wet and dirty, with a distinct smell of smoke and chrysanthemums and remnants of dying leaves on trees which casted transparent shadows. A road, clearly not one from this century, brought me to the city's northern edge, semi-still and yet rattling with the noise of low-flying aircrafts and nearby train stantion. I have always wondered what nostalgia compelled my parents to choose this city as their home. Any explanation of coincidence sounded controvertible. Recognizing the weakness of logic in situations like this, I decided to just capture the surroundings on my camera – without any arguments and convictions of what was seen.
