Modern life erases differences between countries, their fragile beauty and authenticity. The story tells about tranquility and aesthetics of little towns, people’s ways of living that become a thing of the past: a little Kushugum, where my father was born and my grandparents passed away; a frozen in time mom’s city Zaporozhie; a warmth of the great-grandmother in tiny Orikhiv. – November, 2012.
