Endorsements and Review Quotes
“The album takes viewers back into the 19th century and on the brink of the Red Revolution when the Old Russia ceased to exist so abruptly. Revealed in children’s dresses for all occasions, every day life of the perished generation comes to light and becomes a testimony – as seen in the faces of the younger generation and their concerned parents – of the epoch that will never be revived.” EYES IN™
