"Our colleague, our friend Andrei Golovanov celebrated two holidays last November - his 60th birthday and victory in the All-Russian Sports Parnassus competition, becoming the best sports journalist in the country. Our congratulations! Bravo, maestro!
Most of us have recently become photographers. Even a word was born - take a photo. The business to which Andrei devoted most of his life has nothing to do with this craze. Golovanov composes a photograph, arranging the frame according to the canons known to him. Perhaps that is why we are looking at his photographs (a number of them in collaboration with Sergei Kivrin),
like paintings by artists."
