The Museum and Social Center by name of Andrey Sakharov is presenting a photo exhibition by Pavel Gorshkhov "Father Mickhail's Collective Farm". The theme of the exhibition can be defined as the image of positive hero in modern Russian village or a view of a townsman upon nowadays' country life. About a year ago Pavel Gorshkhov, press photographer of the "Itogi" magazine, still existing then, went to a village of Belgorod region to make a photo-report "Scholl and Church". During his trip he met a person whose spiritual power and energy amazed and fascinated the photographer. That was Mickhail Alexandrovich Patola, Director of joint collective farm of villages of Gorki and Bogoslovka. Mickhail Patola turned out to be not only director, but also a priest. He had served at the local church over 15 years and two years before was elected Director of the collective farm: In the summer of 2001 Pavel Gorshkhov once more went to Belgorod region, made a photo-report about Father Mickhail's collective farm and wrote down his talks with him and his fellow-villagers. The exhibition will last until October, 19.
