SAMARA: Dmitry and Sveta were walking along the frozen Volga River on Woman’s Day, far from the rest of the holiday goers that were enjoying the beautiful sunset. Dmitry, who works for a local power company, said he met Sveta at a New Year’s eve costume party in the Samara suburbs to ring in 2014. He was dressed as a martian and she was dressed as a robot.
An avid photographer, Dmitry said he noticed Sveta’s Nikon camera as they prepared the table for the New Year’s celebration. Most of the 15 people gathered in the house were friends and acquaintances, except Sveta. ”I hadn’t seen her before and I was interested in finding out who she was,” he said.
Over the next two days, they talked not only about photography, but ”about everything.” Dmitry said he will be moving to Moscow to be with Sveta, who works as an architect in the Russian capital.
