Alexey Furman is a Ukrainian photojournalist currently pursuing his MA in Photojournalism in Columbia, Missouri, USA. See Blogroll for a link.

All text is taken from Alexey Furman’s site: “Malanka is a traditional holiday celebrated in Eastern Europe every year on January 14, New Year’s day according to the Julian calendar. It is celebrated under different names in several countries, but in Romanian village, Krasnoilsk (located in Ukraine close to the border with Romania) this day turns into a mad carnival as locals dress up as fictional characters and walk through the streets singing traditional songs in an attempt to feel the bond with their ancestors”
