St. Petersburg: Katya and Dasha, 14, grew up in Vladivostok in a military family and moved to St. Petersburg. They were walking along Rubenshtein, a popular street lined with cafes, restaurants and bars.
MOSCOW: These two sisters from Vladivostok came to visit their grandfather in Moscow. He took them to VDNKh Park, where one of the current exhibitions is about robots. The exhibition - as I understand - lets visitors make their own robot helmets from boxes. Many young people - including these sisters - were wearing the cardboard helmuts for fun as they walked around the park. I took one photo with the helmets and one without.
MOSCOW: These two Kyrgyz sisters, 24 and 19, were enjoying the warm weather at VDNKh Park in national outfits on a summer weekend day. I asked if they were dressed for a holiday or event. They said no. The sisters said they have been living in Russia for several years and both work cleaning offices.
