The man who takes photos of Vladimir Putin

The man photographed conducting the meeting in the Kremlin looks like anything but a typical Russian general.

In a photo uploaded to social media by Russian businessman Egor Kornev and shared on Twitter on October 30, he looks as though he is lightly trapped inside a tight green tube, his arms stretched with a deep shake.

His facial features are seared in a pair of shiny black sunglasses, both upper and lower parts of his forehead are lined with a decidedly placid expression and his nose appears to be lined with dotted dots.

The image is also unique for its sheer size — the figure in the picture is smaller than the shrub being grabbed by the general’s body. It was evidently created by inserting the model — known in Russia as a perovskhnikov — through the tube of a 500 mm lens, or behind the model.
