Before I moved to Lviv I didnt know that one of my big role models in writing, Sholem Aleichem, did live in Lviv for a couple of years. But he was, as I, a restless soul and moved around a lot so to cross his tracks is not very surprising. However, I did know that Ludwik Fleck did work and live in Lviv before and during World War II. I hope to able to write about his Lvivian legacy during this winter. Below you can see a photo of the Jewish Hospital, were he worked.
This is how my photo sessions continuous. Lviv is a place that delivers great views in almost every angle. More to come…
Autumn turns to Winter, and viewpoint-east.org has been very silent for several months. To compensate this I will during the next coming days published some of my photo sessions from this autumn. I hope to be able to be some more active during winter and spring.
viepoint-east.org is now located to Lviv in Ukraine. I will stay here for at least one year, hopefully much longer. Since it is my first visit to Lviv it will perhaps take some time to find topics on essays, articles etc. But after been able tracking those down, viewpoint-east.org will of course be more active. If you have any suggestions, please contact me.
August heat still covers most parts of Russia, Ukraine, Belarus (such as the rain pours down at the Swedish West coast), but as far as I have heard the rain and chill is on it’s way during this week (but a storm has already hit Northwestern Russia). I think, however, it’s time for a new hot recommendation: Taras 3000.
Taras 3000 is the alter-ego for Dmitri Yaponets, DJ, performer and producer from Moscow. I have never liked to label music so I refrain and let you decide for yourself what you think and feel.
My lastest visit to Kyiv, but hopefully not my last, was in January-February this year. Cold and dark, but even so, more nice, warm and friendly. Hopefully these pictures can share some of those feelings.
