The Russian Museum in Saint Petersburg

During my stay in Saint Petersburg, I spent many hours at the Russian museum and it was an incredible experience.
I felt deeply inspired by Russian art, I was totally in awe and I felt compelled to take several pictures of most of the large paintings of the collection.

While I was shooting picture after picture, I kept framing little details out of big canvases, distorting them and using shallow depth of field to isolate them from the bigger picture. I’m not sure why I did it, but it was quite an interesting experiment.
