ZHELEZNOGORSK is located in the center of Siberia, near Krasnoyarsk. It is the very beautiful city. I wanted to show to inhabitants of Blaunt County their sister-city. I have taken CD with photos of photographer Alexander Vlasov. Inhabitants of Blaunt County could see them at an exhibition in a reading room of Public library of District Blaunt in July, 2003.

Comments from Melinda Rust, reference librarian: "When Tamara sent me an e-mail saying that she dreamed of bringing lots of photographs back from her trip to Tennessee for a display in her city, I wrote to her that I thought it would be wonderful if we could also have a display of pictures of Zheleznogorsk here in Blount County. I was thrilled when she replied that she had talked to a photographer who was willing to help. I am extremely grateful to Alexandr Vlasov for sharing his time and effort and excellent talents to make this project possible. Because of the difficulties in transporting large numbers of photographs overseas, Mr. Vlasov suggested putting the photos on a CD which Tamara brought to us during her Open World visit. Kathryn Pagles, our library director, printed them out on her home computer so that we could display them at the library. The plan worked beautifully --- Mr. Vlasov had magically sent us your city on a CD!"

Comments from Joan Van Sickle Sloan, community out reach coordinator at the Blount County Public Library: "We are very grateful to Alexandr Vlasov for making it posssible for us to exhibit photographs of Zheleznogorsk at the library. Through our recent art exchanges and other activities, many of our patrons have heard about our Sister City in Russia, but they really do not have a very clear idea of what the city is like. Now they can look at Mr. Vlasov's photographs and see the streets and buildings and people there. It's delightful! The photographs themselves are very beautiful, and Zheleznogorsk looks like a wonderful place to visit! I particularly like the wide, sunny streets, the elegant architecture, and the forested mountains surrounding the lovely lake. In fact, I was amazed at how much the mountains and lake look like our mountains and lakes right here in east Tennessee. This is truly one more way in which our cities are "sisters"!"
