This picture has been haunting me, especially as I found it very soon after reading Everyday Saints http://everyday-saints.com/, which gives so wonderful an account of the hand of God in the survival of Orthodoxy in Russia during Communism.

The caption seems to be just the name of the photographer. Does anyone know where and when the photo was taken, or anything about its history? [Click on the link below to see it full-size.]

Vespers celebration of the Trinity in the Solovetsky Monastery (Solovki Islands in the White Sea). I think it's about 1990 - 1995 years.

Thank you very much, Serg-antr. Do you simply know that from seeing it before somewhere? Can you perhaps point me to where it was originally published?

Thank you, Michał. Because I can't read Russian I had not realized that it was part of series, and that the rather decorative arrows on each side would take me to more photos.

In the meanwhile I had searched further and found that particular one again as the last photo this series from a 2010 exhibition of photos of the Monastery with captions in English:
http://www.pravoslavie.ru/english/48209.htm

And I read more elsewhere about the tragic history of the place (of which I was ignorant) and how the monastery is being revived and restored, which puts the photos in their larger context.

Glory to God!

My friends were there in 1997. This picture is very similar to those photos that I've seen from them.
