The two parallel

Russia 


This black-and-white series of photos is about two sisters abandoned by their father, a reunion which can be no question. The most important thing is that they don't know they are related. They meet once a year in a small village, — communicate, play, weave braids to each other, but don't know that they are sisters. Gulshat lives in a poor family, in a small village. Alina lives in the city, studies in a prestigious school, and does ballet. Two lives that run parallel and that should not intersect never, according to the lV postulate of Euclid. And yet this happens, as in the hyperbolic geometry of Nikolai Ivanovich Lobačevskij. In a Russian village two parallel lines meet once a year.
