Guardians of Russian Art Museums by Andy Freeberg

Russia. The people that I know who have gone to Russia only end up leaving more bewildered and more fascinated by the country than they were before. This collection of photos entitled "Guardians of Russian Art Museums" done by Andy Freeberg only seems to confirm that Russia is a place that an outsider's mind can never understand. These photos are so charming and priceless. Thanks Andy Freeberg.

  1. The pictures are so charming!

  2. This post made my day! I love all the people assigned to sit in those chairs, they're often worth watching or looking at more than the art itself!

    Russia = mysterious. Great post!

  3. These ladies all remind me of Whistler's Mother!
