The Russian Beauty by Oleg Videnin

Oleg Videnin looks straight into the eyes of his fellow Russians.

He centers his classic black-and-white documentary portraits around these fixed stars

of a seemingly unknown cosmos. There is a distant glow of 18th-century Russia in

some of the dark pupils. The way an elegant young lady wears a little glass heart on a

thin chain over a lace band collar, she could be a character imagined by

Tolstoy, Pushkin or Dostoyevsky for one of their heart-rending novels and novellas.
