POSTCARD FROM MINSK

The City of the Sun

“Almost twenty years ago, when I began shooting ‘The Sun City of Dreams’, I liked to go out into the centre of Minsk on early Sunday mornings. At that time of day, the city is completely empty. According to an old tradition, on Sundays the people of Minsk leave for their dachas, and the only ones who remain are those on the job or with no place to go.”
