That’s Not Snow, That’s Kiev in Infrared

Would you like to go for a walk? How about in Kiev, Ukraine in a place called Andrews Descent? Recently reopened, photographer Elektraua shot photos of the place which is often described as the “Montmartre of Kiev”, using infrared film.

The leaves on the trees glow a vibrant white, statues and architecture stand out from the buildings on the path. After the new paving and reconstruction, the historical street, which used to serve as a trade center and home to many museums and stores, is looking very beautiful now. The path leads up to the old St. Andrews church on the top of the hill.

A place of legend, history and culture, Elektraua depicts stunning shots of the famous street.
