Through the Eyes of Koss

As promised, here are just a sampling of the 3,000+ photos from our life-changing week in Slobodskoy. These particular pictures are through the eyes and lens of Koss Modenov, a renaissance man who has a magical way with the English and Russian languages…and yet can tell a strong story with no words at all. Thanks, Koss, for helping bring Slobodskoy to Chapel Hill, NC and Brosville, VA and Bruce, FL.
