Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn returns to Russia from exile in 1994.
Mikhail Evstafiev believes that "A photograph is a reflection of how one views the world around him. It can only describe the things a photographer is prepared to see."
Working since 1996 mainly as an editor, in his free time he has focused on long-term personal photographic projects, including:
"The Red Syndrome" (1991-1998) about die-hard communists - watch it on YouTube
Since 1998, he has been working on a photography book project about Cuba, which was inspired by the 1964 classic "I Am Cuba" shot by Russian film director Mikhail Kalatozov.
("I Am Cuba: The Ultimate Edition" on DVD) presented by Milestone Films.
He has visited Cuba four times and travelled to the island's many provinces documenting the day-to-day life.
