Photo-story, shooted in village Svetlana, Leningrad region. This story about life of people with disabilities in the autonomous community. Imagine the landscape. On both sides of Syas river flowing to the northwest and flows into Europe’s largest lake Ladoga, placed small villages. In one of them only 4 houses, farm, garden, greenhouse and a sauna.
Approximately half of the 35-40 inhabitants – people with mental disabilities or in need of a special approach. If you want to stroll through the village, they can come and ask – “Where are you from?”. They may also ask about your family. You’ll be surprised how soon they will know a lot about you, but… if you want to know them, you must cross the bridge and see scene of Something else.
