This photograph was taken by Alex Zhilyakov on June 17, 1993, the graduation day at school N40. Sergey Vernigorenko aka Green was making a speech on behalf of our classmates, addressing our great teachers and tutors. The negative film from that event was scanned some 10 years later and had tons of scratches and spots (this is just normal film ageing, I suppose). I made some effort to restore this and several other photographs from that memorable day.
PS: If you were my classmate and would like to get any of the pictures from our graduation day, please do not hesitate to ask me.
