East German Photographer Captures 'Russian Fairytale'

Raised in East Germany, photographer Frank Herfort has been working as a commercial photographer in Moscow in the architectural, editorial and advertising industries for years. These photographs of Russia are an example of his purely artistic work.

"This very charming city, with all its controversial sides of life, gave me the opportunity to develop my cinematic-dream-like shooting style," he said of his experience of working in Moscow.
