The heroes of their artworks are an ordinary people i.e. craftsmen, conductors, cooks, soldiers etc. Every image reflects a history of life, character. More than 100 years these photographs lived their own life. Inscriptions, shabbinesses and stamps, which are the original "traits of time", were added. The artists depicted on canvases the brightest and the main contents of these documents.

"Anatomy of the memory", - Andrey Belle said, - is the attempt to touch a moment that has already been stopped over 100 years ago, to be astonished at it, to be delighted by it".
