The presentation of photo album made by Dmitrii Pesochinskiy“Saint Petersburg: 300 meters above the city” took place as a part of project of Viacheslav Zarenkov “Creative world” on June 9, 2016.


Presented issue is the first and at the moment the only one album of photos that capture the Northern Capital from a birds eye view.

In this colourfully printed and gorgeously designed album the viewers can find a world of exquisite panoramas of Saint Petersburg.

This book is a result of more than sixty survey helicopter trips, which the photographer Dmitrii Pesochinskiy accomplished in a few years. Finally a new exquisite idea appeared - to show the city from unusual perspective. Toy-city, Saint Petersburg is like a toy model, appears on the palm of the viewer, who in many cases observed the scenic view of the city only up to the rooftop height.

The photographer pays attention not only to the historic center of Saint Petersburg but to the suburbs as well, he also opens the unexpected beauty of urban fringes and Leningrad region. Most of the photos are published for the first time.

Photo album “Saint Petersburg: 300 meters above the city” has the fullest collection of high-altitude pictures of the Northern Capital in the history, nowadays it appears to be one-of-a-kind creation.
