Photographer's Note

The bandurist at the Sofiisky Sobor (Sofia Cathedral) was playing and singing in that extremely bad weather even for an empty monastery yard, with full commitment, I would say professionally. His old Ukrainian songs sounded really beautifully, tragically and desperately, accordingly to their genuine spirit. Almost nobody passed by and I didn’t see anybody paying him. I asked his permission to take some pictures, he just waved me in sign of agreement, not interrupting his song. Then I gave him some money, he expressed his gratitude with aristocratic dignity and continued playing despite wind and snow going on, and I heard his sound voice long time after I left him.
