metal turner

metal turner

i did not do this as a portrait because i did not have good lighting and a tripod. so, i decided to show the master in his "environments" - an old workshop, providing more details of it.

I think I should give more details about the shot. It is Boris Il'insky, the last worker of the last workshop of a repair and engineering works which collapsed together with the USSR. He uses his lathe (made in 1963), the last working tool here, in the lightest corner of the room, in this chaos and devastation around. The new owner of the building is not going to invest into manufacturing...

I have worked with metal lathes in the past, nothing this old though. I hope the new owner lets Boris keep the old Lathe as it looks like it is part of his life.
Magnificent shot loaded with History and detail.
