After having lived for some time in Russia, I began to dream about showing the world the beauty of Russia and especially the Russian people that I got to see in my every day life.
I wanted to share the diversity and beauty I am experiencing and I wanted to share the wonderful stories that Russian people think and dream about. I wanted to tell the stories that are not told when you are just passing by people on the street or sitting next to them at a cafe.
The stories are so magnificent and complex that it would not have been right to express them only in words which is why I tried to capture them in pictures. It took me over two years, and I met over 230 people and shot their portraits. This project has 100 pictures of people between the ages of one and one hundred. They all shared their dreams with me.
