Frank Herfort  Visual Artist who tries to find the Magic with the help of Photography #frankherfort Fine Art Prints available in my shop :

“ Epiphany “ , Bath taking at the Russian Orthodox Epiphany Day, in russian just called Kresheniye. At this day, it is said that all waters are holy. For three times you need to take a bath and your body and soul will be free of all evil things and health will come for the following year. As I watch this ceremony already for several years in Russia, I realized, it totally changed from the spontanous pure and simple hole in the ice to a massive organized event with police, life quards and security. So, I was happy to find such a location where you still feel this simple spiritual spirit. This shoot was taken exactly one year ago not far from Moscow. Fine Art Prints like this are available at my print shop on my site.

“Rest At Old Oak“ , Sergey was born in an Ukrainian village among a family that
raised horses. Now he is working for a horse entertainment company near Moscow, but he still uses old traditional wooden russian sleds ( Sani-Rosvalni ), for transportation reasons.

“Elephant I“ , At the Zoologichesky Museum in Moscow with an old stuffed elephant in the background. Due to his heavy weight, the elephant never found his way to the second floor collection next to the other animals. At the beginning, he was placed next to the entrance area of the museum, where he still stands today.
This and other photographs out of my work Russian Fairy Tales are available at my online print store on my website.

“ Hunting House Polyashova II “ I lighted it up with several lights during daytime and a very cloudy moment. The house was build in 1903 by Iwan Polyashov, who became one of the most wealthy man with his construction business in St. Petersburg. He was also involved in a reconstruction project of of the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg. He built his wooden summer house in his native village Pogorolevo, where he was born. Today, this village is fully abandonned and actually the only thing left is this beautiful building in the style of a russian city mansion at this time. Since several years a Moscow artist is living there and take care of this very unique piece of russian history. Located in the deep northern russian forests near city Chukloma, only reachable by foot or a extrem off road vehicle. Available as Fine Art Print.
