JUST TRY TO IMAGINE, YOU AR BORN IN A COUNTRY THAT LIVES UNDER A POLITICAL REGIME WHICH CONTRAINS YOUR FREEDOM. TO NOT BE ABLE TO LIVE YOUR LIFE THE WAY YOU WOULD CHOOSE TO LIVE IT IF YOU HAD THE CHANCE. YOU PROBABLY WOULDN’T MISS IT. AFTERALL, ALL YOU KNOW IDS THE LIFE YOU LEAD. OR IS IT.
Almost 20 years ago the powerful Soviet Union collapsed, leaving a political mess in Eastern Europe. But it also opened the country to a new future, more loose, away from oppression and with opportunities people could probably never have dreamed of enjoying in their life. It seems hard to imagine, now, that people went through this, but they did. Dmitry is one of them.
Dmitry was born 30 years ago in the Soviet Union and was about 10 when the Iron Curtain came down and – symbolically spoken - opened a window towards a whole new world full of opportunities. Dmitry is one of that generation who can still remember life under a regime of oppression and censorship and who can therefore probably enjoy his new found freedom as no other. And so he does, in every sense of the word. And he share it with all of us.
30 Years ago Dmitry was born in Moscow. During his early life, he enjoyed two educations, technical and economical, in order to prepare him for his future. Besides school he also liked sports and was a fervent tennis player. Which he practiced for about 5 years. During the last 17 years Dmitry spent an extendable amount of time in gyms as well as with practicing yoga and reading philosophy. And so he worked on both his physical and mental well-being. Professional-wise Dmitry has worked most of the time in the restaurant business. He cooked, he waited on tables and he managed restaurants.
Opening Russia’s borders allowed people to start traveling. Something Dmitry gratefully took advantage of as well. Now he can not imagine what his life would be like without his travels. He has visited many countries and this eventually brought him to the studio of Dylan Rosser in London, which resulted in a wonderful set of photos of which you see some examples here, and of course much more on Dylan’s The Male Form web gallery. Next step for Dmitry is music. Having enjoyed music for most of his life, he has now set his mind upon writing mixes and performing them around the world. Dmitry’s plans are big, but we have no doubt that he, being part of this new generation of world explorers, will succeed in living his dream. –BM-
