There are several thousand posts on Russian speaking Instagram tagged #будущийзащитник (youngsoldier). Those are pictures of kids of different ages often dressed up as soldiers, from amateur snapshots to professional photo sessions. The ever-growing militarism in today's Russia and the still flourishing myth of the Great Victory of the Soviet people in 1945 are powerful political instruments. The instruments that use even those who can barely speak yet — some of the kids in the pictures are 2-3 years old. To bring back some childhood to these pictures I use software and turn them into mosaics, just like those I used to play with as a kid.
