As the old sang goes a picture is worth a thousand words, we already disproved that but in any case this picture is worth at least a ten minute story by the only man who could tell it, Platon. The World Press Photo contest has put together quite a nice collection and very nicely designed, we may add presentation of select images with accompanying photographer turned storyteller.
While we have enjoyed many of the stories from the amazing photographers who contributed there is something truly gripping about hearing the harrowing tale from deep in the dacha. It appears we are not alone as well, others are too impressed with Platons public speaking, maybe there is a retirement plan somewhere in there.
Anyhow fair play to both Platon for the brilliant story and image & to World Press for putting this all together, keep rocking it.
A bit of extra random knowledge for y'all, anyone who occupies a dacha is for the time being called a dachnik. Use that information as you please.
