I don’t remember too much after being adopted in 1994. I came to New Zealand when I was 2 years old. These photos were taken in my Birth City of Arkhangelsk, Russia in July and August 1994. My Mum and Dad when they came to Russia in the early 90s took a video camera and a photo camera.
These photos are incredible. They were taken inside my orphanage just before I left Russia in 1994.
I know that one day I will go back to Russia to revisit these exact locations! – Alex Gilbert
