With the emergence of the new world order and the shifting of both political and social norms, one thing that still remains a constant is a person's need for love. Whomever, wherever one is, the need for home, friendship, and love remains a constant in a world full of turmoil and misunderstanding. Christopher Makos and Paul Solberg will be showing photographs from recents trips to Russia, which show the normalcy between cultures regardless of political persuasions. learn more
