In the artist's own words: “This photo was taken while walking near the Church on Spilled Blood. I was struck by the sailor walking towards me, as he reminded me of several Russians I had met during my trip – stoic, strong, walking with purpose – much in contrast with the glamorous couple (the
woman in the pink). I thought the contrast between one of the world's oldest professions and new Russia/high fashion culture was striking.”
