    Thank you for bringing this photographers work to my attention, it’s amazing. I was really taken in by the 11th picture in the series ( ) which does an amazing job of recalling Ansel Adams birch tree photograph ( with the ironic note of soviet architecture in the deep background.

    I saw Alexander Gronsky’s work at Foam in Amsterdam. I was surely one of my favorite exhibits of 2010. His use of line to capture the eye is really spectacular.
