On October 25th and 26th I had the chance to work in Astana, Kazakhstan and discover this new capital crazy about extreme architecture and new technologies. Most of the city has still a soviet times atmosphere while the rest is trying to compite with new megacities. In a way it reminded me of Dubai but with a Russian touch.
After very difficult months in which my known world was turned upside down and I had to face a terrible loss, here I am, trying to find solace in photography thanks to an unexpected new commission.
