Softcover, first edition of 10 copies, signed, design and texts by Arseny Kosterin

This is a book about love, about Moscow and about the city night. This book can even be seen as a catalog of light the city can produce. But above all this is a very personal story about my feelings. The book of love and hope, told through the views of familiar streets transformed by the darkness but continues to emit light. The story is about the way the light is not possible without the darkness, about how the night clears the city of garbage accumulated in the streets and in our souls. This is about the beauty exists everywhere and always. Like night and day. And this story is love confession. I made this for Nadezhda Prikhodko.

Shoot in August-November 2013, Fujifilm Superia 400, cross-processing. This is first part of the project – second part “Flowers for Nadezhda” is in progress now.

A rough translation of the poem in the end of book:

After drinking tea with milk,
I confess to you in love,
not knowing where my house now,
could recollect it from above -

there will be a table, and there is a bed ,
and window opening is glowing.
You say, "My dear, let’s come asleep,
to wake up together next morning".

I'll cook you a soup,
you could eat it at night ,
You’ll say, "You're my best friend".
And I’ll answer: "Here and now
no one ever anywhere else
gave so much warmth -
like you and I". Well, and then -
tea with milk, window opening,
and bed and table and soup -
is our house.
And all these things is ours.
