    "The Girl Next Door" by Frank Herfort

    A series called "Russian Fairy Tales" by German photographer Frank Herfort shows everyday life in Moscow and other places in Russia from an unexpected angle.

    Herfort characterized Moscow, where he had a chance to live, as a "very charming city with all controversial sides of life," praising the Russian capital for giving him "the possibilities to develop cinematic-dream-like shooting style."

    You can see more works by Frank Herfort on his website and Instagram.

    Prints of his works are also available on his website.
