Professional photographer Alexander Petrosyan has dedicated his entire life to the discovery and documentation of the streets of St. Petersburg. His street photography has a set theme – beautiful yet grotesque. These pictures capture the raw beauty from the unpredictable streets of Russia and are very different from the picture postcards that you would normally buy as a tourist. Alexander’s greatest inspiration is the city itself and he has found a great way to ensure that the documentation of the city does not go unnoticed.

Alone At Last
