The Russian

Berlin has a sizeable Russian community and many of them live not far from our apartment.

This man owns and operates a ticket agency for Russian language events:

lectures, book readings, concerts, musicals, etc.

His English was no better than his German, so I couldn’t do my usual interview, but I had to do his portrait.

Not because of any physical resemblance, but somehow while drawing his picture I was reminded of my grandfather from Kiev.
