Saint Petersburg, Russia’s “window to Europe” carved against all odds by the will of a single man (Peter the Great), is an unprecedented masterpiece of urban planning and architecture. This Narcissus city that admires its own reflection in the mirror of its countless rivers and canals. One can see much more in the reflection than in direct gaze — and that's why we'll use the looking glass to explore it. For a curious mind and eye armed with proper equipment, its landscape may become a true Wonderland full of mysteries and places of power.
Our photo walk is based on usage of mirrors of different shapes and sizes that will serve as portals to city’s otherside: by placing them in different places and choosing the proper angle of shoot, we’ll catch urban textures, patterns and oddities. We will dive into an incredibly rich urban landscape and hunt for visual impressions and unforgettable pictures of the city.
Depending on the chosen itinerary, you will see different sides of Saint Petersburg: from the mysterious Peter and Paul fortress, marvelous necklace of embankments around the delta of Neva river and many-faced Nevsky prospect, to exquisite and romantic Art Nouveau districts of Petrogradskaya side or stark, impressive landscapes of its industrial and Soviet districts.
A detailed and coherent narrative about the structure, history and contemporary life of different districts of Saint Petersburg will also be provided. This experimental walk will be interesting to beginner photographers as well as professional ones.
