Partly inspired by Kayden's Russian photos, I've decided to post Russian photographer Gueorgui Pinkhassov, whose style is very different (more impressionistic, almost Saul Leiter-esque) but who has a similar eye for color.

Good read! I like the article above it, too, trying to match the lovely images with words. Gerard Manley Hopkins is a good shout out!

I meant to say before – Pinkhassov's little videos on Instagram are really neat, too. Just an example:
