The exhibition presents a series of photos taken at the Museum and Park of the Gatchina Palace (St. Petersburg) by photographer Yuri Molodkovets.

Specially installed light, zooming and unusual focus with extraordinary ornamental details reveal in ancient appearances an intriguing modern psychology.
