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.
