Beastial Struggle

A titan tears open the mouth of some leviathan on the grounds of Peterhof - summerhouse to the tsars.


The sheer decadence of the place is almost disorienting - coincidentally I found myself stricken with nausea and delusion throughout our visit.


Katya and I spent the day amongst Peterhof's fountains, forests and gardens during our time in St. Petersburg - it's about 30 kilometres from the city, on the Gulf of Finland.

    A very powerful and electrifying shot. I can almost feel the force at which he is opening the fishes mouth and the water drops seem full of motion despite the fact that your camera has isolated them for a brief moment in time.
