“Spasibo, Yuri”: The Online Community That Blurs The Line Between Reality And Space

Have you every imagined what if things were different on our planet? How would the sad reality that surrounds us would look like?
Alexander Dobrokotov is the founder of the online community named “Spasibo, Yuri” (Thank you, Yuri). According to him, “Thank you, Yuri” is the ironic mix of sadness and happiness for the space exploration. It depicts sadness, because the times when Soviet Russia sent the first man to space – Yuri Gagarin, have passed. And happiness comes from the fact, that Yuri was the first man in space. He was the man, who has started the age of the space exploration with his iconic word “Poehali” (Let’s go!). This simple word uncovered a huge, radiant infinity of space for everyone on our planet. It showed us the immense vastness of space. Sadly, something went wrong. Instead of flying into the bright future, the country has collapsed, while gradually drowning into the new infinity of dangerous neighborhoods, abandoned churches, and drunken villages we see today. The wreckage of the once great country is reflected in the digitally edited photographs of the online community “Thank You, Yura.”
