Playing with restraint with the familiar motives and palette of the region, the photographs work as complex allegories. Samoilova's imagery provides a broad but poignant perspective on what it is like to live in high-risk areas.

The project focuses not only on the environmental problems of the region, but also on the geography of these cities. Despite climate risks, South Florida is experiencing a dramatic increase in population. The concrete jungle continues to expand and replace mangroves, wetlands and farms. The images will make viewers wonder how the economy of urban development affects the lives and behavior of people.

What : Culinary master class in Russian

When: Saturday, December 18, from 10:00

Where: Online

More: Chef Alex invites everyone to his master class, where he will prepare masterpieces of world cuisine online – Italian bolzano pizza and authentic beef stroganoff. Alex will teach you how to make the perfect pizza dough – thin, crunchy, and you will make the delicious mushroom pizza popular in the Trentino Alte Adige region.

Beef Stroganoff was created specifically for Count Alexander Grigorievich Stroganov, a major philanthropist, the richest man in Russia, who donated his family library to Tomsk University and founded Novorossiysk University in Odessa. But it went down in history primarily thanks to its gastronomy. The fact is that in old age he lost almost all his teeth, and this forced him to abandon many of his favorite dishes. But he continued to be the same gourmet and was incredibly sad about this. So, especially for him, the chef of Count Andre Dupont came up with a recipe for a dish where small pieces of beef were stewed in a special sauce, which made it possible to swallow delicious meat almost thoroughly without chewing without harm to health.

Cost: $ 12
