Well if you want to properly pay tribute to someone you admire at least try to write down her name correctly, which is Leni Riefenstahl (not Rifenstal)

And if I may say so, I believe it is a paradox from a young Russian artist - whose grand-parents may have had fight in Stalingrad or elsewhere in Russia against nazis troops - to pay a tribute to this very woman, when you understand properly the role her films (as a medium for nazi propaganda) played in the mind of hundred of thousands of German soldiers and millions of narrow minded and easily manipulable civilians.

That said, my intention is not to start a politic issue here ! I expressed a very personal point of view (I'm jewish by the way...) regarding a very unusual artist, and do not judge your art which I find quite good indeed. And I must admit I have a certain sort of artistic respect for what L.R. achieved in her carrier despite some talented but highly controversial movies she has made for the dreadful nazi regime all which led to years of abomination and millions of death…

Best regards.

Say thanks to Third Reich, without it you wouldn't have your country now - sounds paradoxal, but it's true.
If nazis wouldn't kill so many Jews so you would still be scattered across the globe without own country.
And who would comment on "dreadful nazi regime" - look what terror is now in Palestine.
However I am not accusing your country.
Just don't accuse Third Reich while doing the same with other nation.
It is a simple human wish to exist and reproduce, which requires expansion and new territories to be conquered.
The politics of both Third Reich and Israel is the proof of that statement.
And probably you are not aware that there were about 1.5 million Russians who fought on the side of Third Reich.
So "..a paradox from a young Russian artist - whose grand-parents may have had fight in Stalingrad or elsewhere in Russia against nazis troops " is not a paradox.
Learn history of the epoch/country you are commenting on first.

sorry, my grandmother is from Germany, and our family had a really hard times in red russia.
Sure the tilte is not seriouse as most of my titles, and its more a parody to LR. she created extra gay and flat hero charecter, wich is much overused by artists( spesially gays). I think she's an evel nazi cunt, who after all she did cowerdly rejected her own art...isn't its the worth thing she could do? BUT..whatever I do is a week and endless repeating of her.

all my photos are nothing about the art, it's just a way to get loads of hot boys. As any other gay photographer. I'm much more artistic with female models, sure coz I'm not interested in subject:)
