«The first day of Datong - meditative retreat for a period of 1 month - I asked each participant to just sit down in front of the camera. In order not to distract the viewer's attention extraneous things, I photographed people on a white background. Before you take a picture, I was interested in what is in store for each of them from the upcoming experience. It was the first day. At the end of the program, after about 30 days of rehabilitation meditation, I asked everyone to sit the test on the same background as the first. This time I asked them what brought them a month of meditation practice. The result, as they say, is obvious. Looking at the pictures before and after the practice of meditation, you begin to realize that all these people have gone through the experience of transformation. Let the audience he looks at the pictures and make certain conclusions ». I>
