" It is miraculous what one ray of light can do to a human soul" ( F. Dostoevsky ) . >>> I have read once that Dostoevsky was sentenced to death and right before the sentence should have taken place he looked for an answer. He saw the ray of light reflected on one of the church domes and realised that it was the answer and that his soul was saved. The sentence was cancelled last moment.
I took hundreds of photographs of this little wooden church in Siberia, Russia. Watching the rays of light reflected on its domes in autumn and then in winter...Could it be that these reflections share the same nature with the human soul? Both are made of light?
