Elena Zachesova

“No place in Moscow can better display the ever-changing Russian landscape and character better than Gorky Park. Built in 1928; Gorky Park has always been a key destination for Muscovites of all ages to enjoy. In May I walked through Gorky Park, as I often do, accompanied by my camera. Through my lens I sought to capture the diversity of people enjoying the Moscow spring. I realized that this park appealed not only to different cultures but also to different generations. A wonderland for children to enjoy an array of colors and noises: carousels, boats parades, trees, flowers and gardens. A meeting place for young love to break-the-ice with concerts, dancing, and exhibitions—and a common destination after weddings. Sanctuaries for the elderly to go for a stroll, enjoy a good book, and absorb the energy of the younger generations.“
