Private Moon by Leonid Tishkov
In 2003, Russian artist Leonid Tishkov fell in love with the moon and vowed to stay with her forever.
As the story goes, the moon descended from the sky and appeared in the thick upper brush of a pine tree outside Moscow; her crescent curves were boldly illuminated from within. Tishkov embraced her, adored her, and, when she asked to see the world, promised to show her as much of it as he could. “She shone to me personally and brightened my loneliness,” Tishkov says.
