DESCRIPTIONIt was the end of winter when I visited a man in the heart of Ukraine. I photographed him, standing behind the window of his house. It was freezing outside and frost was covering the thin glass. The man has a desire to the earlier days and his face showing his emotions when in his mind he travels back to his younger self.
