Abandoned Russian Villages in 2015

In Russia there are multitudes of abandoned villages. Most of them have the monuments of a long gone era. One Russian blogger traveled to some of them recently and this post is what he brought back from the journey. We
start with a wooden church. Despite it looks it's not that old.  It was completed in 1910. Then communists turned it into warehouse in 1940  - as they did with many churches that were not blown up.

0 Russian Artist Sergei Vinogradov and Scenes of Life He Depicted

Russian Artist Sergei Vinogradov and Scenes of Life He Depicted

Do you sometimes want to know how things were a hundred years ago? How people lived? What they felt? Did their surroundings looked like ours? Was the nature the same? Then we try to resort to photography but soon realize that at those times it was not like it is now - when everyone has a camera in their cell phone. At that time only a few had access to technology and if they were taking photos they were staging shots, posed very precisely and often
with precious moments of life slipping by unnoticed. So another resource to visually see the life of the past is art. Painters were often more interested in getting real life on their canvases, and we are lucky that such artists, like for example this old Russian painter Sergei Vinogradov, existed. He depicted people, surroundings and more from a hundred years ago and now we can enjoy his works and get the feel. See more inside!
