This church, the headquarters of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, was built only eight years ago. The original monasteries on this spot, were built from the 12th century on Ė the last of them was completely destroyed by Stalin 1937. It remained an empty lot until the Ukranian president ordered this reconstruction in 2001. I wanted to make the shiny new church seem more of an ancient vision, and less of a picture postcard. It had rained heavily the day before, and a drying puddle caught its reflection nicely. I photographed the reflection so that the building was cut off by paving stones at the top, and then turned it upside down to make the building seem to rise out of those stones and into a textured sky. A tire track arches across that sky, creating a stylized rainbow over the reflected golden domes. The monasteries of old seem reborn here.
