Photographer's Note

Vitebsk, also known as Viciebsk or Vitsyebsk is a city in Belarus. Vitebsk developed from a river harbor where the Vitba River flows into the larger Dvina.

Its official founding year is 947 based on an anachronistic legend that it was founded by Olga of Kiev, but the first mention in historical record is in 1021.

Since 1992, Vitebsk has been hosting the annual Slavianski Bazaar in Vitebsk, an international art festival.
