Sparkling City Of Moscow Celebrates Orthodox Christmas In A Magical Flurry Of Snow And Light


Photographer Kristina Makeeva masterfully uses her camera to capture the magic of Moscow during the winter season. On January 7th, she continued to do so while celebrating Orthodox Christmas—not by going to church, but by visiting Russia’s iconic sites to reflect on her country’s beauty and history. At Moscow’s Red Square, Kremlin, and the locations of many spectacular light displays, Makeeva engaged with these dreamy settings filled with a flurry of bright lights and colorful energy.

Each image captures a bold personal style, finding a beautiful balance between sharp lines, constant motion of people and precipitation, overexposed scenes, and out-of-focus elements. Altogether, Makeeva’s work documents the excitement and joy taking place amidst a soft snowfall and dazzling illumination. To continue watching this visual narrative unfold, you can follow the photographer on Instagram.
